We’re so proud…

Riedenburg, Germany, August 2014

At the Rosenburg Castle in Riedenburg they keep and develop the fine art of falconry, with accent on reviving almost extinct species of birds of pray. One way to finance the whole thing is to make shows for the public in which they present and educate about these magnificent birds – vultures from all over the world, owls, kites and falcons. As time for the show to start got closer and closer, the birds, exhibited in the yard, got more and more impatient, as they knew there’ll be food soon.

One of the stars of the show was the white scavenger vulture, a very intelligent fella. His part was to show the public the technique he and his kind use when eating eggs. They take the egg and go in search for a stone on the ground. Once they found one, they drop the egg on it until it cracks and the bird can enjoy a nice meal.
