Spain issues a Premium Sheet with six stamps, which has as protagonist the lammergeier. The flight of the bearded vulture over the Pyrenees impresses everyone who has the opportunity to see it.
This bird is adapted to live in the harsh conditions of the high mountain. Its anatomy is unmistakable. It is a large bird that can reach more than 2.80 meters.
Normally it does not emit any sound being a quite silent bird, but during the time of estrus, it produces long and piercing whistles.
Its name is due to the way it has to feed itself. It is the last link in the use of the carrion because it is nourished by bones and tendons thrown from a certain height against the rocks to cut them. The area where this activity is carried out is called "breakwater".
