Die Alpendohle (Pyrrhocorax graculus) ist eine Vogelart aus der Familie der Rabenvögel *(Corvidae).
www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qQ86TT36tI

Der 34 bis 38 cm große Vogel ist ein mittelgroßer Vertreter seiner Familie und zeichnet sich durch schwarzes Gefieder, rote Beine und einen gelben Schnabel aus.
Die Paare sind monogam und halten meist bis zum Tod eines Partners
Grundsätzlich ist die Alpendohle oberhalb der Waldgrenze anzutreffen, kommt aber vereinzelt und vor allem im Winter auch in tieferen Lagen vor. Wenige Vogelarten brüten in ähnlich großen Höhen: Die Brutgebiete reichen in den Schweizer Alpen bis auf 3800 m, im Atlas bis auf 3900 m. In Kaschmir bewegen sich die Vorkommen im Sommer zwischen 3500 und 5000 m. Eine Ausnahme stellt in dieser Hinsicht der Balkan dar, wo die Vögel vielerorts zwischen 500 und 1400 m brüten. Auf Nahrungssuche sind Alpendohlen am Mount Everest auch schon auf über 8200 m beobachtet worden. Ebenfalls von Everest-Expeditionen stammen Berichte von Sichtungen in Flughöhen über 9500 m.

The Alpine Chough is an omnivore. Like the Alpine crow, it eats mainly invertebrates and fruits, but shows greater opportunism in the diet and readily absorbs other types of food. In spring and summer arthropods and their larvae, snails and earthworms dominate the food spectrum of the species, against fall stone fruits, berries and pome fruits gain in importance, provided they exist in sufficient quantity. Even then, numerous locusts make up a large part of the food. In winter, berries and coniferous seeds are the food source of Alpine Chough. Wherever it reaches human waste, it becomes the main food source in winter. In addition, the Alpine Chough eats all year round bird eggs, carrion or small vertebrates, provided they can get hold of them. She eats grit regularly and often takes snow in winter.
Even in flight, they capture a considerable part of their food. The animals fly at low altitude against the wind to catch grasshoppers and other insects from the air. Especially in winter, the species is found frequently in mountain villages, at ski stations and in mountain stations, where it pulls the supply of human food leftovers. Above all, such food hides the Alpine chough regularly, to bring them back later and eat. Mostly the food pieces are in rock clefts.

A great capture here Anna. The yellow beaks make these look somewhat friendlier than our normal crow here.
