Bone breakers

With a wingspan of 2 metres, the lammergeiers soar across the skies over the mountains. Picking out the bones from a carcass, they smash them against rocks to expose the nutritious bone marrow. Young birds need plenty of practise, it can take a full seven years to get bone breaking mastered.
