I’m 15 years old from Kfar Sava at the center of Israel.
Favorite bird: Wallcreeper
I started birdwatching in elementary school 5 years ago after participating in a short workshop about the birds of Israel. The lectures fascinated me and I started birdwatching in the neighborhood. Later on I joined the SPNI youth birding club activities including monthly meetings and trips all around Israel.
The last five years have been an ongoing process of enriching my knowledge of birds in Israel and abroad, collecting many interesting and fun experiences and increasing my love for this amazing world in nature.
My goals for COTF2018 are: Seeing more than 150 species, a lifer or two, and the most important goal is to raise as much money as we can in order to fight against the illegal hunting of birds in general and Common Quails in particular.
It will be my second time in the COTF and my first time with the “Tawny Owls” team.
