First nest of Griffon Vultures in Central Balkan Mountains

03/13/2017

The young birds surprised the team of Green Balkans, placing its nest on… the ground!
The vultures from the programme for the restoration of vultures in the Balkan Mountains sometimes present us with real surprises… Just like two of the birds, seen regularly near the vulture adaptation aviary at the village of Tuzha, Central Balkan. Yesterday, the field assistant of the Vultures Back to LIFE14 NAT/BG/649 Project informed us that there is pair of vultures sitting on an egg in a nest on the ground. The team of Green Balkans got quite confused as Griffon Vultures usually nest in remote cliffs high above the ground. Furthermore, the birds remaining in the area of release are mostly young, there are no nearby colonies in the mountains so we did not expect breeding attempts so soon.
