Grifo, Eurasian griffon, (Gyps fulvus)

Hello Friends!

Today a last landing picture of this species. In general they leave the sleeping places and progressively pick up the upward currents in search of food.When they know feeding points stay close by and always with some guards around. When I went to the hide before sunrise already saw a vigilant perched on a cork oak. When the sun rises hundreds of vultures flew over the shelter and went away and I thinking about what happened the food was in front of me.... few minutes later they start to come.Incredible scene.
About the bird You know it but can access:

Have a good week and thanks for viewing.
