The Tel- Aviv Birdwatching center is the IOC newest center - a thriving hub for birding activities for the huge population of the Dan region.

The “Bird's-Head” is located on the Yarkon Stream, featuring diverse habitats and hides and the capability to host a large number of urban visitors such as school children, scouts, vacationers and more.

Creating a large, rich and diverse habitat, in the heart of the largest metropolitan area in Israel,  provides shelter and resources for millions of migratory birds.
