White-Tailed Eagle (Haliaetus Albicilla)

Eagles are often mentioned in the Bible. The White-Tailed Eagle is extremely rare. Only a few nests have been found, built in high trees, in the Hulah marshes and on Mount Gilboa. Very few eagles breed in Israel, most of them being winter visitors or passing migrants. For this reason these large, beautiful birds, like all other raptors, are protected by law.
