We are a group of keen birders:
All team members are guides, or former guides of the SPNI’s Youth Birding-Clubs. In fact, in this group we join forces of three generations of the birding clubs- Amir was a member himself and later Yael’s guide; Yael is guiding the incredibly promising youngsters: Ma’ayan, Shalev, Iris and Moran.
Our passion for birding is a key feature and we wish to sweep the Negev Desert in search for both migrants and local birds. Speaking of local birds… three of the group members live in Midreshet Ben-Gurion so we count on some home field advantage.
Our strategy is taken from the Red-breasted Flycatchers – to stay alert constantly, to look for every slight movement or rustle, and to be a delightful surprise for every birder ☺
Overall, we wish that all migratory birds flying over would be safe, here and elsewhere.
This is why we are participating and this is why we ask you to help us to help the birds!
Simply, press the button “Donate here” and add your donation to the growing pile of money. This will directly help the
Quails and other birds passing through Croatia & Serbia, which are now being hunted massively.
Just for perspective- Amir remembers thousands of Quails when birding during migration in Israel, Yael remembers tens of them in a good migration day but the youth members of the groups have rarely seen a single Quail in a full birding day. It is devastating! If we don’t so something then when Ma’ayan, Shalev, Iris and Moran will be guiding they wouldn’t be able to show Quails to the future members of the Birding-Clubs. We need your help now, when it is still possible to save them!
