Located in the Jordan Valley in Israel, Kfar Rupin kibbutz is surrounded by ponds, fish farms and fields of crops that attract birds in large numbers. In the surrounding area it is easy to see Pygmy Cormorant, Great White Pelican, Black Francolin, Syrian Woodpecker,  nesting Barn Owl and during the migration period large numbers of Lesser Spotted Eagles, Black Kites, Black Storks, and many passerines. During winter months Spotted and Imperial Eagles are easy to see. It is certainly one of the must stops if traveling from south to north or vice versa as it is located halfway between the southern desert areas and the Golan Mountains and close to the mythical Hula Valley and the Sea of Galilee. There are several houses for 2-4 people, fully equipped and very cosy. Breakfast is included, left in the kitchen in the morning. The accommodation is decorated with ornithological motifs and free Wi-Fi is available. The staff of the newly opened Birdwatching Center provide a checklist of the birds in the area as well as all the necessary information to find the best birding sites. They also have an extensive naturalist library mostly in Hebrew and they sell birding souvenirs.
