Israel’s position between Africa and Europe makes it an important stop for migrating birds passing through.
KKL-JNF’s bird-watching organization ‘KKL-JNF Wings’ (Kanfei KKL) has established and maintains a network of parks and sites around Israel where migrating birds rest and refuel for the grueling journey ahead to Europe or Africa during the winter and spring months.
The constructed habitats ranging from forests to wetlands and ponds also attract Israel’s many local bird species, who also find their home here.
KKL-JNF has constructed discreet hides and lookouts where you can observe our feathered friends for yourselves!
All of their bird-watching sites are open to the public during daylight hours, free of charge.
KKL-JNF Wings also supports ornithological research.
Now, the KKL-JNF international website has a special bird-watching portal, where you can find recommended bird-watching sites around Israel, and related KKL-JNF ornithological activities.
