Bearded Vulture / Lammergeier - feeding on carcass
Gypaetus barbatus
10 foot maximum wing-span. Only bone-eating specialist bird in the world - Found in Spain, France, Greece, Turkey, Italy, Africa. Rare and declining in many areas. Recently reintroduced in the Alps. Adults feed on the bones of carcusses which they will often drop on flat rocks from the air to break them into smaller more easily swallowed pieces. Primarily high mountain dwellers, nests in caves and remote rocky cliffs and often engage in polyandry. Reddish color of adults comes from bathing in iron-rich springs and may confer status.
