      Red Bearded Vulture AKA Awesome dragon birds!

    • Denise Alvarado

      "..And they aren’t naturally red like that. That’s self-applied makeup. They find the reddest earth they can to work into their feathers as a status symbol. And they don’t scavenge other parts of carcases, just the bones. 85-90% of their diet is exclusively bone. Hence why it’s only a myth that these birds would just pick up whole lambs and carry them off. It’s not true, but in German they’re still called Lämmergeier as a result."

      The Bearded Vulture is a bird of prey in mountain ranges throughout Europe, Asia & Africa. It eats mainly carrion & lives and breeds on crags in high mountains. They prefer desolate areas where predators who provide many bones (wolves, golden eagles) have healthy populations. They are typically found around or above the tree line (6,600 ft in Europe; 14,800 ft in Africa).

      The Bearded Vulture, Gypaetus Barbatus, also known as the Lammergeier or Lammergeyer, is a bird of prey, and the only member of the genus Gypaetus. It feeds mainly on the bleached bones of dead goats and sheep. If the bones are too big, it drops them 50 to 80 meters onto plates of rock to shatter them, and eats the splinters. No other animal is capable of digesting bone which means that the Bearded Vulture has no competitors for its food. Its powerful stomach acids can dissolve even large bones.

    This parrot is a Australian Rosella. I cant see the front markings and colours to see what its other names are. They come in flocks to get a good feed at my house, easily trained they return if you feed them for several days.
