With this Ring...
Ringing is a research method in which a small, uniquely marked ring is attached to an animal's body. These rings allow researchers to track and study the birds and their habitats.
Ramat Hanadiv is a popular transit station for migrating birds. The park offers birds a large water reservoir and plenty of food: seeds, insects and fruit. Some of the birds only stop to rest and eat while others stay here for the entire winter.
The ringing begins early in the morning, when the team from the Israeli Bird Ringing Center (IBRC) arrives and spreads their nets. Visitors are able to experience and get a close look at the various birds, learn about bird ringing, weighing and examination, and also enjoy seeing the birds released at the end of the process.
Visitors may reach the spring on foot via the Spring Trail (an easy 2.5 km trail suitable for the whole family), which is marked in blue and begins at the Trail Head by the main Ramat Hanadiv car park, or drive to the Ort Binyamina school car park (turn off Route 652) and then turn right and ascend to Ein Tzur through the back entrance to the Nature Park, which is marked with a green sign (a walk of 500 meters).
Visitors are invited to watch the activity and get up close and personal with these birds and their enchanting world.
