The Israeli National Bird Poll

The Israeli nature preservation society is running a poll to choose the Israeli national bird. As talkbackers noted, many of the “negative” attributes of the birds they listed as cons are actually very typical of our national character – aggressive, loud, etc. Haaretz mentions that an earlier attempt to nominate one of the candidates was rejected because of this endemic species’ latin name – the Palestine Sunbird.
