Mr. Birdman, AKA Professor Yossi Leshem, is a slightly religious, authoritative man with rugged Israeli charm and the persuasion skills of a salesman. Today, he is the primary defender of Israeli nature and virtually the only groundbreaker in the talks with Palestinians and Jordanians. While negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians are stuck, Prof. Leshem is waging an uncompromising battle for coexistence  with the aid of barn owls as exterminators in the fields.
