During the monitoring of the occupied Egyptian vulture breeding territories in 2013 in Bulgaria and Greece, it was found that two birds marked with green rings formed pairs.

One of the birds was observed for first time on 19.4.2013 in northeastern Bulgaria with a green ring on the left leg and metal ring on the right one. The observed marked bird is probably female and the pair started to incubate on 10th of May. The second bird formed a pair in Northeastern Greece. Both birds have been ringed as chicks in 2008 by the Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds. These are first evidences for participation of birds from this generation in the breeding season.

We hope the number of recoveries of ringed birds to increase and wish successful breeding season of young parents!
