This is a video about Eurasian griffon vultures being fed in Spain.
Today, I went to the playground where I used to play when I was small.
Then, the playground would be on the right; and, still further, the soccer ground on the left.
The soccer ground isn’t there any more.
The owner had 65 birds, and had brought 13 for the show.
All those were bred in captivity; else, it is illegal to have them.
They included a one year old Andean condor.
And a Eurasian griffon vulture.
These big birds, however, could not fly here, as there were too many obstacles on the playground.
There was also a Eurasian tawny owl.
The first bird to fly today was a barn owl, 300g in weight.
This owl has been with this show for ten years, and sometimes brings the wedding rings at weddings.
After the barn owl, a Harris’ hawk.
When it sat down on top of the playground building, jackdaws tried to drive it away.
Then, a Rüppels’ griffon vulture.
Then, a red-tailed hawk.
Then, I went to the allotment gardens, next to the playground.
These gardens were founded originally in 1942, when many people were hungry.
Today, there are still potatoes, but also flowers.
And a pond for toads is being built.
Then, just before the playground, I went up the path across the meadow, which hadn’t been there when I was small.
I saw a moorhen and a mallard.
And thirteen Canada geese, a grey lag goose, and a Egyptian goose.
A bit further, coots, and two oystercatchers.
Still further, there was woodland, and I heard ring-necked parakeets and great tits.
There were also jays, grey herons, and magpies.
A woman told me there were often two buzzards there.
I went back across the meadow.
Herring gulls; many coots and moorhens.
Back at the playground, the second birds of prey show.
First, a hooded vulture.
Then, a Harris’ hawk.
Third, a Eurasian eagle owl.
Then, the Rüppels’ griffon vulture again.
Ferruginous hawks of America: here.
