Huesca, Aragonese Pyrenees: Bearded vulture

 

A whistling sound sharper than that of a kite bounces off the enormous rock faces of the Aragonese Pyrenees. And suddenly, the bone of an animal that has been dead for a couple of days falls from the sky, breaking on contact with the sharp rock. This is how the Bearded Vulture - Gypaetus barbatus - feeds. It is the pinnacle of the evolution of scavenger birds. A spectacular animal worth watching and photographing.

The largest population of Bearded vultures in Europe can be found in the Pyrenees. We are fortunate to have a population of around 100 breeding couples. It is one of the most impressive birds in Spain. Not in vain, along with the griffon vulture, it is the largest bird that lives and flies over our territory.

Enjoy the opportunity to watch closely the bearded vulture, a bird of great beauty. Enjoy an exclusive weekend, getting to know and respecting a beautiful bird that has been gradually recovering its population numbers.

Although the main species of the weekend will be the Bearded vultures, we will not overlook other species. Marmots and groudhogs, vipers, wallcreepers, black woodpeckers and many others are part of the local wildlife that we want to watch during our walks.

We will stay in a small family-run establishment at the entrance to the Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park, in the heart of the Aragonese Pyrenees.
