Fifty years after presumably becoming extinct as a breeding species in Bulgaria, the Griffon vulture, one of the largest birds of prey in Europe, is back in the Eastern Balkan Mountains.

Since 2009, three local conservation NGOs—Green Balkans—Stara Zagora, the Fund for Wild Flora and Fauna and the Birds of Prey Protection Society, have been working on a long-term restoration program to bring vultures back to their former breeding range in Bulgaria.

Griffon vultures are scavenger birds that feed on dead animals.

A cloud of griffon vultures indicates the location of a good food source.

Others come from up to 100km away, circling the corpse until – almost like aircraft descending in strict order – they begin their careful but sudden downward spiral.

The apparent turmoil of these feeding scavengers is one of the most impressive spectacles in nature.

Disputes soon arise, and through them, temporary hierarchies are established.

The hungriest lunges first, and when this one is satisfied, other birds, aggressive with hunger step in.

In less than half an hour, nothing remains but bones.

The effectiveness of these scavengers is as impressive as their biological function is essential, crucial for the proper functioning of the various ecosystems that surround them.
