The team of the Green Balkans` Wildlife rehabilitation and breeding center have observed active breeding behavior for the last few days between the Egyptian vultures pair, which are in a separate aviary. It was a signal for us that the breeding season for them is about to beggin.

Therefore, our team, which is a part of the “Egyptian vulture New LIFE” project, decided that it is time to prepare for the upcoming exciting moments.

While the pair was caught, disinfected and marked with a harmless spray – each bird in a different color, the other part of our team was working hard in the aviary – the home of the birds. The floor and the walls were thoroughly cleaned and disinfected and the nest platform covered with nest material – sticks, wool and feathers.

And so, the birds are again masters of their home and we will observe by the cameras in the cage the life of the young couple … because the interesting is about to come.
