DEMOISELLE CRANE still present today in northern ISRAEL

The DEMOISELLE CRANE was still present today with over 5,000 wintering Common Cranes in the Hula Valley, from the Crane Observation Tower at the Reserve, accessed off of the main road 8 kms south of Qiryat Shemona.

There are also excellent numbers of raptors wintering here, including both EASTERN IMPERIAL and GREATER SPOTTED EAGLES and of course, the resident WHITE-TAILED SEA EAGLES. There are also up to 100 MARBLED DUCKS on the neighbouring fish pans.
