- Info: Live streaming webcam showing a nesting site for European bee eaters in the Agamon Hula Nature Reserve in Israel. The Hula Valley is an important stop over point for migratory birds and especially cranes, as well as being home for many resident species including ospreys, falcons, herons, pelicans and mallards. Over 500 million migrating birds visit the park each year.
European Bee-Eaters breed in colonies and they make their nests in sandy banks, usually near a river. Their nest is a relatively long tunnel and they lay 5 - 8 white, spherical eggs. Both the male and female incubate the eggs which hatch after about 20 days.
