Storks over Zihron Ya'akov

It's now bird migration season again and there are thousands of birds flying through Israel now. If you can get to the area below Zihron Ya'akov on the coastal road, you can see hundreds of storks in small and large groups. These large birds are everywhere, flying in loops in the sky, in the trees, in the fields and of course around the fish pools of Ma'agan Michael.
For a special tiyul, take the train to Haifa that passes right by the fish pools. That way you don't have to worry about driving and running into cars that slow down or stop at the side of the road to look at the birds. It's really not a sight anyone can ignore.

This is a picture I took from the car.
