Photographer's Note

Maagan Michael is located on the Mediterranean coast between Tel-Aviv to the south and Haifa to the north. It is an excellent area with fishponds that attract a host of wintering water birds and passage migrants, including large numbers of storks, pelicans, many species of herons and egrets and a wide range of waders. The latter are seen in large numbers and include scarcer species such as Broad-billed and Terek Sandpipers, Greater Sand Plovers with some records of Kittlitz Plover and Crab Plover, both extreme rarities in Israel. Migration periods can produce three species of crakes. Other much-sought-after wintering birds include Great Black-headed and Armenian Gulls and Citrine Wagtail are all relatively easy to find here.
