Millions of Birds Flock to Israel

An amazing sight, hundreds of millions of birds flock to Israel during their migration path from Africa to Europe and Asia.

Over 500 species of birds stop at the Sea of Galilee the place where Jesus once walked on water.(See Video Below)

Many scientists are stunned and amazed at this amazing sight, experts say near by wars in Syria and Iraq are forcing the birds to all gather in Israel, which is attracting vultures and other predators to the area as well.

The Sea of Galilee, also Kinneret, Lake of Gennesaret, or Lake Tiberias , is the largest freshwater lakein Israel, and it is approximately 53 km (33 mi) in circumference, about 21 km (13 mi) long, and 13 km (8.1 mi) wide.

The lake has a total area of 166.7 km2 (64.4 sq mi) at its fullest, and a maximum depth of approximately 43 m (141 feet). At levels between 215 metres (705 ft) and 209 metres (686 ft) below sea level, it is the lowest freshwater lake on Earth and the second-lowest lake overall (after the Dead Sea, a saltwater lake). The lake is fed partly by underground springs although its main source is the Jordan River which flows through it from north to south.
