Eilat Birds Festival

11th Annual Eilat Birds Festival -19/03/2017 - 26/03/2017

 

The Eilat Birds Festival is back! We thank our supporters and friends and promise to keep providing birders with the best value package for birding Eilat and southern Israel available today!

The Eilat Birds Festival is hosted by the Israel Ornithological Center and is designed to bring together birders from the world over for an unforgettable week of birds, migration and nature during the peak of spring migration.          

The 2016 festival was a great week. The event drew a great crowd that ranged from birding professionals of the highest level to amateur birders, both from abroad and from Israel. Festival visitors enjoyed a full program and were joined by the participants of the 3rd Champions of the Flyway race that took place immediately following the festival.

 The week produced fantastic birding experiences, combining incredible raptor migration, a great show of local specialties and some good quality rarities.

Significant species that were noted included Black Bush Robin, Caspian Plover and more were seen by festival groups. Local specialties such as Thick-billed and Greater Hoopoe Larks, 8 species of Wheatears and the shy Red-sea Warbler put on a show.
