Animals and Birds

Packed into Israel's small area are snow-covered mountains, parched deserts, fertile fields, lush woodlands and long stretches of sand dunes. All of this makes Israel home to a stunning variety of animals and birds. Israel's location on the migration route from Europe and Western Asia to Africa is responsible for the very large number of bird species in the country.
