My name is Haim, I’m 16 years old from Jerusalem. Since I was 9 years old, I’ve volunteered at the Jerusalem Bird Observatory. I like to know as much as I can about birds, therefore I read books and watch movies about birds. At school I’m learning geography as major class and I always try to find the connection to birds. I am be happy to take part at the Champion of the flyway 2019, usually I go birding in my neighborhood or at the bird observatory, and the race is a great opportunity to explore the Negev desert. Especially, I am looking forward to watching the Arabian Babblers – they are such a friendly bird and I hope to see some during the race this year, since I can’t watch them near my home regularly.
