A day in the life of a vulture

This is an interesting snapshot of what our satellite tracked vulture does in this single day.  Early this morning (28 April) it moved from a location in the Wadi Sareen Reserve, by noon it was back in the area north of Ibra, and made a single excursion out to a storage dam to the north, and by evening appeared to be roosting in a location north of Ibra where it has spent much time over the past weeks (See earlier blog posts).  For much of the past month or so this bird has moved mostly within a 10 km x 10 km area just north of Ibra.
