Here’s another vulture photo-this time a Griffon Vulture (Gyps fulvus), also known as Eurasian Griffon. Again this photo was taken from Monfrague Castle in Monfrague national park which is in Extremadura, Spain.

Common Hoopoes (Upupa epops) were a common sight (and a distinctive sound!) during my recent trip to Extremadura in Spain. This bird posed nicely for me, but wasn’t interested in raising it’s crest!
