Here is a Green Prophet exclusive: our very own poll to vote for Israel’s National Bird!
Following on from the recent post ‘Choosing Israel’s National Bird’ (which you can read here) which explains the intense media and national interest in deciding which feathered friend should represent Israel from now on, in honour of the Country’s 60th; we here at Green Prophet are doing our bit and want you, our honoured readers, to join in and tell us which bird you want.
We will gather all the votes up, a few days before the official announcement to be made by President Peres on may 29th, and send the result off to our friends at SPNI (who are organising the official vote), so hopefully we can have our collective input.
But let’s see how close us Green P’s are to the mood of this great Nation – is the yellow vented Bulbul (the picture above) (‘Pycnonotus Goiavier’ Latin) (or just straight ‘Bulbul’ in Hebrew) our great choice, or could it be the Yellow Tufted Sunbird, also known as the Palestine Sunbird (‘Tsufit’), who flies into our hearts and becomes the symbol of the Nation?
Ideally we’ll all be out catching site of all these birds across the Country anyway (maybe even at the Los Caparos concert in the Valley of the Cross?), but if not, we will post a picture of the feathered contestants every other day to give a glimpse of what these beauties look like.
You tell us! VOTE HERE
