Hearing the distinctive muffled distant bird-noise, I ran out of the house.
There they were--so many birds, stretched out in long lines!
The lens wasn't even wide enough to catch them all.

The formation was flying north/northeast in the direction of Hebron and Jerusalem, and then maybe to a rest stop in Israel's northern Hula Valley.
Twice a year, spring and autumn, 500 million waterfowl, birds of prey, and song birds from 400 species fly over Israel on their great migration between Africa and Europe.
They have learned to feel safe over and in our nature-loving country.
