The Bee-Eaters Pond & Other Avians

On the hilly northern side of the ancient village of Gush-Halav, in Upper-Galilee,
there is a hidden spring forming a pond of clear water.
A covey of Bee-Eaters have made this pond their habitat, and the area is abundant with their
nesting holes. The view around is superb, as you can see...
