Rüppells Griffon Vulture, originally uploaded by gwendolen.

I visited Birdpark Avifauna today. They have an interesting collection of birds, but I feel they do need to upgrade the park and give the birds more space.

The Rüppells Griffon Vulture is a large vulture, almost about a meter high. There was quite a large group of Griffon vultures in the cage. They are very social animals. They live in central Africa and nest on cliffs in colonies of up to 1,000 pairs.
