Bearded Vulture

Photo of sketch of a family of Bearded Vulture, Gypaetus barbatus, in the nest. The nest is a massive pile of sticks, that goes 1-2.5 m across and 0.6-1 m deep, with a covering of various animal matter from food, after repeated uses. The female usually lay a clutch of 1 to 2 eggs, which are incubated for 53 to 60 days. After hatching the young spend 100 to 130 days in the nest before fledging.
