White Stork Migration Route Over Palestine
Every spring, half a billion birds migrate through Palestine from their wintering grounds in Africa to their breeding grounds in Europe, and every autumn they return the same way. It’s one of the busiest corridors for bird migration in the world . The large soaring birds that migrate by day, to exploit the thermals rising from the land, most of Europe’s white storks and white pelicans traverse the skies above Palestine twice a year.
