Griffon Vulture

The Griffon Vulture is a large scavenger bird from the mountain regions of southern Europe, North Africa and Asia. The above bird was photographed in Edinburgh Zoo (you could probably tell from the less than attractive background). Although a rather ugly bird, in my opinion the feathers are amazing. Facts of the day are that these massive creatures have a wingspan of 230 – 280cm and live for around 70 years!
