While I have never seen a bearded vulture (or lammergeier) in real life, I find them to be one of the most fascinating birds. Most vultures are known for feeding on the flesh of carcasses for which they scavenge. Bearded vultures, on the other hand, ignore this part of the animal and instead eat the bones! They soar high over the rocky outcrops that make up their habitat and drop large bones onto the ground to break them up and make them more manageable to swallow. They are also extremely beautiful to look at, and the mask on their face combined with the bristles on their chin gives them a comical expression!
