Bearded Vulture

The Bearded Vulture or Lammergeier (Gypaetus barbatus), is an Old World vulture, the only member of the genus Gypaetus. It breeds on crags in high mountains in southern Europe, Africa, India and Tibet, laying one or two eggs in mid-winter which hatch at the beginning of spring. The Lammergeier has been successfully re-introduced into the Alps, but is still considered threatened in Europe, although it is rated Least Concern overall.
