Monitoring a new nest
Since 2014, SEO BirdLife has been running a webcam of a Cinereous Vulture nest, providing a glimpse into the species’ breeding season. This time around, the webcam follows the life of a new active nest located on a large Scots pine in the Sierra de Guadarrama National Park on its Madrid side. In this area, a large Cinereous Vulture colony exists that totals 360 pairs in the Sierra de Guadarrama. Alto Lozoya’s nucleus (Rascafría, Madrid) is the most important with about 153 pairs and one of the most important colonies worldwide.
The cinereous vulture is a large raptorial bird that is distributed through much of temperate Eurasia. It is also known as the black vulture, monk vulture, or Eurasian black vulture.

Still sitting on the egg! When does it hatch? 🙂 I like the birdy tweeting sounds though of the other critters in the area 🙂
