Northern Israel, winter 2019 - Black Storks!
Choosing the Black Stork as the logo bird for the Jordan Valley Birding Center was a very good idea - iconic, beautiful, and happily impossible to get away from as they grace the skies above the centre and the fishponds in good numbers. Not just that, but because of the nature of the fishponds, they're remarkably tolerant of disturbance, and anyone with a mobile phone can get close-up shots of them on the deck and in flight.
Not that that dims their innate elegance - they're a true joy to behold and it's an unforgettable experience.
