Gray Cranes come to Israel
Watch: every year, tens of thousands of Gray Cranes stay in Israel’s Hula Valley during the winter; to prevent the birds from destroying crops, the JNF has set aside land near the Agmon lake for the birds to prosper. Erez Erlichman documented the cranes from sunrise to sunset, in special tractor-drawn safari wagon and in the field.
Approximately 48,000 Gray Cranes have landed in Israel’s Hula Valley for their yearly migration.
They will be wintering in the Lake Agamon area of the valley in a special JNF reserve.
Additionally, the JNF is preparing 750 tons of birdseed to feed the birds so that the birds don’t eat and destroy crops.
