That would be nice! Israel is a great place for birding, especially during migration. It does make more sense to visit the northern parts, although there are many birding festivals which happen here in the south and I know that there are many birding groups from Europe that come to my area (the very south of Israel). If you need some information about birding in Israel or generally about Israel, you are welcome to contact me.

And since it is birds thread and not a discussion thread, here is a Little Green Bee-eater:

Every morning when I take the dogs for their walk (come rain or shine) my friendly robin appears and sings happily for us. An hour or so later when we return, dirty and bedraggled these days in constant cold and wet, Robin, for that is his name, pops back onto the branches and watches the dogs get their hose down and dry.

When I've finished with Ollie and Rosie and despatched them with their carrots into the kitchen Robin hops down onto the doorstep for a few seeds that I have ready. Today I kept my a7ii with FE 70-200 f4 handy and recorded his arrival for you.

All taken at 200mm f4 with manual focus peaking to get him between the branches. I give you...... Robin:











Thanks for looking.

Great story Brian and a nice reportage on Robin.

It's also our experience here that once you gain the trust of a Robin (mostly by providing nibbles) they come very close to you.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Lee, lovely capture of the Cardinals! Although we have large variety of birds around here, I miss the Cardinal which was my favorite birds when I was in Boston.

This morning I went out with first light to try the combo of my new a7RIV with the 200-600mm lens. No birds at all... Few gazelles, but the light was not enough to get a good picture. I always say that the myth that you need to get out early in the morning for birding is not true...
Anyways, in the afternoon this little female Palestine Sunbird came to visit my back yard. It was in the shade and between the leaves.

Peter,
Brilliant photos!
So lucky you have these beautiful subjects available. Wonder if they're refugees from the massive bushfires?
All very good but I particularly love #1 and $4.

Thanks Joe. No these were taken at Lara wetlands just south of Barcaldine during our winter sojourn last June. Still got loads of shots to work through which will probably never see the light of day!! Actually that reminds me you liked the sunbird and I never did a follow up feeding the chicks etc.....must do.
