The population today is about 5% its former size. Breeding pairs have survived in the Judean desert, the central Negev, the eastern Galilee and the Golan Heights.
It suffers from food shortage in the south and from disturbances and low breeding success all over the country.
The species is on the verge of extinction in Israel.
