Things We Saw on Day 1 of Birding

Getting started in the morning. 
We were walking in a Wadi where local residents have sheep and use pack animals as this shows.
The sheep and men tending them.
This is a large brown iris, one of the wild relatives of our garden flowers.

I took these photos of the scenery and things we saw during our walks at a wadi in Har Amasa just south of Hebron and just inside of Israel -- the West Bank is just over the hills. Len took many fantastic bird photos of an owl, a cuckoo, kestrels, an eagle in flight, a masked shrike, and many others, which I will post at another time.
