Thanks! This bird is known to fly high with bones and drop then to crack them open so it can eat the marrow. Regards, Larry

Larry! This is an outstanding picture! We used to have them nesting here (Israel) in the seventeens - but they are gone for 30 years now. Fantastic! Thanks for reminding me of those magestic birds. Cheers

Thanks Oronbb. Sad to hear that their range is shrinking. We have a BIRD here that disappeared back by the mid-1800's and then in the late 1970's reappeared and their numbers have been increasing each year since. Best regards, Larry
