Wildlife in the City

Wildlife in the city of Tel Aviv, Israel – birds in flight and other birds and wildlife photos

Tel Aviv’s Yarkon park is an excellent place to photograph animal wildlife in the city, especially birds. The Yarkon park stretches along the Yarkon river, from the Mediterranean Sea to the neighboring city of Ramat Gan.

Birds shown are egrets, gulls, cormorants, Egyptian geese, moorhens, parakeets and more. Finally there is the hoopoe, Israels national bird.

Click the thumbnail for larger view, then click the “i” (show info) button on the bottom of the image for more information as well as the name of the bird.

The photos were taken with the Nikon D850 or the Nikon D7200 DSLRs using a Nikon 70-200/f4 or a Nikon 200-500/f5.6 lens. Enjoy and come back for updates and more photos.
