Griffon vultures

Griffon vultures
On their favourite rock, Cancho de La Bola.
Sierra de La Cabrera.
This prominent rock is white because it has been stained with approx 10,000 years of vulture guano, or so it has been claimed and the timeframe since the last ice age seems about right.

Great to look in on the committee meeting. There are no rocks here, so the vultures meet on the power pylons.

Excellent question. I suppose there were trees in most places.

I'm sure you're right! Chopped down to build log cabins and to keep warm in the cold winters!

Great pix, wonder what their subject is for today - "who put together the elephant?"

The subject was this:
'That idiot with the camera thinks we can't see him. OK guys, let's encourage him a bit more and maybe ... just maybe ... he'll lose his footing ... and then we'll have a banquet!'
... Hee hee: I'm ... still ... heee're!
