As we previously reported, a major new international bird race took place in Eilat, Israel this year – the Champions of the Flyway International Bird Race for Conservation. Eilat is one of the world’s most spectacular migration hotspots and was the perfect venue for fourteen world-class teams to convene.
Here is a fantastic video produced by Israeli videographer and birder, Yuval Dax, of the Champions of the Flyway event. The video does a great job of portraying the fun, urgency, and epic birding that Israel provides.
The next Eilat Birds Festival will take place on the 15-22 March 2015.
