Vulture Culture

Eurasian Black Vulture / Cinereous Black Vulture
(Aegypius monachus)


Black Vultures are always quarrelling... especially at a carrion gathering, when there is nothing left to eat. Being the largest birds of prey in the world, their fights are rather spectacular.

Los Buitres Negros siempre se están peleando... especialmente en una carroña cuando no queda nada. Siendo los pájaros de presa mas grandes del mundo, sus peleas siempre son espectaculares.
