My name is Yotam Gabbay, I am 10 years old, and live in Jerusalem. From a very youngage I loved nature, especially animals, but also plants and stones. I began to watch andexplore about birds when I was about 7 years old, and since then I regularly participate in the activities of the Jerusalem Bird Observatory. I now know to identify many of the birds in Israel, especially in Jerusalem, but elsewhere as well. I like photography and enjoy taking good pictures of birds. Another hobby that I have related to birds, is collecting feathers that I find. I am very excited and looking forward to participating in the Champions of the Flyway as part of the team of the Jerusalem Bird Observatory!
