Beautiful murmurations of starlings swoop across Israel’s winter sky!

In this video, murmurations of starlings create beautiful and dramatic shapes in the skies above Sderot, a city in southern Israel.

In fact, Israel is a major stopover for birds.

Two annual events that are highly popular among bird watchers are the Hula Valley Bird Festival in the fall and the Eilat Bird Festival in the spring, when some 500 million birds, including close to 200 species, fly over the country.

Watch and see nature’s beauty hovering over the skies of the Holy Land!
