Griffon Vulture (Gyps fulvus)

Όρνιο (Gyps fulvus)

The Cretan mountains are important ecosystems for providing this bird with its food. We can observe large concentrations (up to 40-50, especially in the summer) of them out looking for food. The birds breed in colonies, nesting in mountainous regions where flocks overwinter. In this way they escape the worst weather conditions, whilst remaining close to a food source.
