The Cinereous Vulture (Aegypius monachus) is a large raptorial bird that is distributed through much of Eurasia. It is also known as the Black Vulture, Monk Vulture, or Eurasian Black Vulture. It is a member of the family Accipitridae, which also includes many other diurnal raptors such as kites, buzzards and harriers. It is one of the two largest old world vultures.
This is the bearded vulture. It lives in the mountains so it can look down on us all. It smashes bones for a living. It encourages its children to fight to the death. And... it dyes its feathers. Why? Because it looks awesome, that's why.
