 Cinereous Vulture (Aegypius monachus) Cinereous Vulture (Aegypius monachus)

The Cinereous or European Black Vulture is the largest of the Old World Vultures, with a wingspan of 8 1/2 to 9 feet. It lives in Spain to southern Russia, and across Tibet, Mongolia, and the Himalayas. The Cinereous Vulture occasionally migrates south to Southern China and Northern India.

The Cinereous Vulture has been recorded flying as high as 23,000 feet by mountaineers climbing Mt. Everest.

While the Cinereous Vulture does feed on carrion, it is more inclined to hunt live prey than other vultures.
