Israel Post plans to issue five birds of prey ATM postage labels in this year, they are the first thematic series after Israel Post redesigned the label's format, it more looks like normal stamp. The last label Bonelli's Eagle (白腹隼鵰) will be issued on September. Those four birds of prey are very common in Israel, and widely live in middle-east and north Africa ; Short-toed Eagle and Lesser Kestrel are also can be found in Europe, but population are decreasing due to habitat destruction and model of agriculture.
