Ramat Hanadiv's Nature Park is blessed with a rich diversity of birds. You, too, can enjoy the spectacular, migratory avian world on the first Saturday of every month, when you are invited to watch and learn about bird ringing.
 
Bird ringing is a basic tool for tracking and studying the activities of birds and is extremely important in the conservation of nature. At the same time, it provides an opportunity for a first-hand encounter between the public and our fine-feathered friends, enhancing people's awareness of nature conservation.
Located near a main migration route, Ramat Hanadiv covers a wide range of habitats in a relatively small area, making it an attractive stopover for migrating birds en route from chilly Europe to the warmer African continent. Within the park, birds can find a large, accessible treasure of food, such as seeds, insects and fruits.

Some of the birds stop to rest and store up energy before continuing their journey southward. Others, like the native cheaffinch, the hawfinch, the Eurasian siskin , and the gray wagtail, stay with us all winter long. Even hawks can be found building their nests in the area, and many of them winter here. From time to time, unusual migrating birds also land in the region. Yuri Soloviov, a member of Ramat Hanadiv's Nature Park staff and a professional birdwatcher, talks about recent encounters with a flock of mistle thrush, an extremely rare sight in Israeli landscapes.

As we said, the bird ringing activity at the Ein Tzur Spring takes place on the first Saturday of every month. At sunrise, a team from the Israeli Bird Ringing Center (IBRC) arrives to  spread out the mist nets. Starting at 8 a.m.
the public can join and watch the bird ringing activity, listen to fascinating explanations about the avian world, and  enjoy a significant experience of nature. The ringing activity continues till 11 a.m.
