• Winter will be here soon, and the yellow-legged gull flock has returned to the Garden, as every year. They aren't nesting yet, but they are already here: you can see them flying above the Garden and hear their loud calls, echoing far into the distance.
  • Our two grown-up greylag geese, which Hadar has raised devotedly, have been released onto the open grass. The two have integrated well into the flock and it's already quite difficult to distinguish them from the other flock members. 
  • Also on the open grass you can see the black swans that we received from the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, and the white storks that arrived at our Garden after having been treated in the Wildlife Hospital in the Safari and cannot be released back into nature. The storks can not only be seen, but their beak clapping can be heard all over the Garden.
  • And if you are really lucky, you may see two black goats strolling in the Garden – a male and a pregnant female. The two are released every morning and are returned to their home every evening, and in between are active and receive better nutrition.
