Northern clean-up

While spending a few days up in the north, I had time for some birding, including a clean sweep of northern rarities, now safely nestled in my 2021 yearlist. 

Israel's first Wilson's Phal that nearly gave me a heart attack when it was found, is spending the winter in tranquility in the Bet She'an Valley. Now relocated to Kfar Ruppin fishponds, it chose a wonderful pond full of birds.

Avocets with Jordanian backdrop

Nice flock of 19 White-winged Terns in summer plumage

Floating solar panels installed on nearby large reservoirs, functioning as comfy perches for birds

Up on the cold and windy Golan Heights, the Lesser White-fronted Goose is still around

Pure gold

Long-billed Pipit in Susita

Two Fire-fronted Serins still on Mt. Bental, with Euro Serins

Tons of storks, kites and starlings at Tovlan landfill site in the Jordan Valley:
