  1. Is that a Golden Eagle next to the bottom? I’ve only seen one in the wild, up in the mountains in the Golan. It was HUGE! Every April — usually the first week in April — the raptors who winter in Africa fly up across Israel to points in Europe and Asia. Since they need thermals to stay aloft and there are no thermals at night, they usually spend a week in Israel chilling out before taking to the air again, so for a week, there are raptors EVERYWHERE. The Audubon Society does their annual raptor count in Elat because that’s where they enter from Africa. Oh what memories those raptors bring up for me!

  2. These are fantastic, Brian! I’m glad someone asked you about what they are other than me! LOL! I’m getting better and remembering your birds, but I haven’t seen you post some of these. The finch caught my eye and you just saved me probably an hour trying to figure out what it was. Thank you for listing them. The chicken is priceless and deserves the prize!!! πŸ™‚

      1. If you aren’t sure, than it’s okay. I’m going to go back and see if I can confirm what you have. Just haven’t had a moment to do that. I’m always curious myself but at least if I have a lead, I can spend less time figuring it out. LOL! You know me so well in such a short time. πŸ™‚
