JNF Part 5 of 5: The Huleh Valley

The Huleh Valley is and agricultural area in Northern area with abundant fresh water. Is serves as a bottleneck stopover for more than one billion birds as they migrate annually from Europe to Africa and back. Over four hundred species of birds must cross this tiny strip of land. As anyone who has lived on a farm knows--this is hard on crops. Israel has resolved this problem by establishing a "restaurant" for these birds. Every day they feed them with about two tons of corn seed! Amazing!
