It is migration season again for millions of birds on the Africa-Israel-Europe route.
The Hula Valley in northern Israel, pictured above (March 2012), is a favorite resting place.
A few days ago a bird collided with the engine of an El-Al jet headed for Tel Aviv.
The plane had to return to Berlin and make an emergency landing.
