Cinereous Vulture - March 1, 2012
Cinereous VultureAegypius monachus
Biking and birding on Geoje - life is good!
Yesterday I took a drive up to Geoje's northwest coast to see if anything interesting was about. I was more than a bit surprised to spot almost a dozen Cinereous Vultures circling over a small village - they're not seen very often this far south. Later in the day, I was at the top of a small mountain with a friend when a group of vultures (probably the same group from earlier), whipped past the peak about 20 feet over our heads. An awesome sight - they've got three-metre wingspans after all!
