Like last time, in October 2021, it was absolutely awesome and much better than the Agamon since you can get much closer to the birds, fish and especially the furry ones which swim just a few meters from you.
Yes, this is one of my preferred places in Israel!
I used to go to the Agamon and on my way to it skip this reserve.
But then, the 1st time, as I had enough time I went in and it was simply like a revelation, truly.
It was not crowded, it was near the end of the day, before sunset and the atmosphere was simply unique.
Just look at the pictures: it is exactly what a Nature Reserve should be.
With so much wildlife just a few meters from you, and flowers, and water, everything was just perfect.
A beautiful experience.

Watching migrating birds flying southwards at dusk in their thousands was mesmerising; a thing of wonder.

It's was in October of 1989 when I was there. It was incredible and I was alone on foot. It was an awesome experience and I got some unusual photographs. I highly recommend a visit.

Definitely a wonderful surprise for me.

I usually go to the Agmon and skip this reserve.
But as I had enough time this trip, I got in and it was simply like a revelation, truly.
It was not crowded as it was after the Jewish feast, it was at the end of the day, just before sunset and the atmosphere was simply unique.
Just look at the pictures: it is exactly what a Nature Reserve should be.
With so much wildlife just a few meters from you, and flowers, and water, everything was just perfect.
I intended to stay there for just 1 hour and continue to Iyon stream but couldn't resolve myself to leave the place...
So I stayed till it closed.
An unforgettable experience.

Just do it!

We were celebrating a family member birthday for two consecutive days up north.
On our second day we went to the Hula Nature reserve.
Since we were a mixture of all ages, the kids rented bicycles and the adults ambled a long in golf cats (electric....quiet and with no pollution.....).
This is not the height of the bird migration season, but there was enough to see for everyone.
The trail is well paved and there are pretty spots to get off and explore.
There is a pretty little botanical garden as well.
We ordered a special breakfast which was delivered to us at the gate and we had a great picnic next to the water with birds, turtles and otters watching.......
Beautiful Park!! Well Worth the Visit!!

A beautiful spot for bird (and other swamp wildlife) watching along a wonderful trail with bridges on the water and a viewing tower. Enjoy

First time we have ever been to a bird sanctuary & it was fascinating.
We went on a guided tour in English about an hour before sunset.
Hundreds & hundreds of cranes flying, squawking, diving into the water.
Make sure you reserve ahead of time & ask for an English tour.
Easy to get to & lots of parking.

Hula is a marsh area where birds stop-over on their migrations from Europe to Africa and then again on their return flights. Over time it has been developed as a bird sanctuary where you can get up close and personal with thousands of birds (particularly, cranes). Because it is a protected area, and food s delivered to the birds (complements of Lufthansa) many birds have made it their year-round home (what's not to like). It was a memorable experience.

You stand still and the world's migrating birds fly past. That, at least, is the way I worked when I have been here in the fall. But I just went at the end of December, and was astonished all over again because so many stay through the winter. This may be the best bird watching in the world (I have birded Gibraltar during the migration, Costa Rica, several regionss of India, and much of North America and Europe,
