19.07.2012


Special on-line camera braodcasts the family life of a pair Egyptian vultures in Bulgaria. The access is free - everybody can watch the birds and learn more about them on the website of the project „The return of the Neophron“ – www.lifeneophron.eu/en.

The camera shows the whole nest, the periodical appearances of the male and female birds and the food they bring to the juveniles. Soon they will reach the size of an adult birds (but will keep the dark color of the feathers till their 3th year) and will be ready for the first flight in Bulgarian sky. In the Autumn, an epic journey of 4000 km. to faraway Africa expects them, where they will spend 2 or 3 years of  their life.

The observed family became popular when hatched their 2 young in the beginning of June. This event made huge excitement among all people who like wild nature, because the rear species is one of the most globally threatened like more popular Great panda, Mountain gorillas and Siberian tigers.
