Currently, Bearded vultures are the rarest vultures in Europe, only occurring in the Pyrenees (around 100 breeding pairs), Corsica (8 pairs), Crete (9-10 breeding pairs), and a reintroduced population in in the Alps (20 breeding pairs). The total population in Europe (including Turkey and Russia) is estimated at 600 to 1000 pairs.

This picture was taken during my 2 days adventure in Buseu a little lost village in the spanish pyrenees.
Jordi Canut has a project to protect the nature and the vultures and eagles in this region.

thank you for joining my challenge animal food fight and this was one of my favourites from the day you entered. But I have to be a strict judge and looking at other images they do have the "food" in the frame so that is why I am choosing one of them...having said that again what an incredible shot of very rare European birds!
