Eurasian Black Vulture
scientific name: 
Aegypius monachus

Yellow ring with a black two alpha-code (on one leg -either left or right- and metal ring (on the other leg).

note 1 : please note which leg bears the colour ring to help identification.

note 2 :  c-ringing of both species of vultures (Eurasian Griffon and Black) started since the reintroduction program in 1981 for Griffon vulture and 1992 for the Black vulture. Until 2005, all chicks were ringed in the nest, but then only a random sample of 50 chicks are ringed in this way. In addition, trapping sessions are made every autumn to ring flying birds, and put a new ring to birds that lost their colour-ring.
