The lammergeier

I had the honor of viewing this bird not once but twice while in Africa:

For those who need convincing to watch the video:

  • It grabs large animal bones, flies over cliff sides, and then drops its payload so that it can smash everything open and access the marrow.
  • David Attenborough narrates this version of the “Life” series.
  • Oprah Winfrey does not ruin anything by narrating (which, in the American version, she does as if she is reading to children).
  • In case you missed the first bullet, the bird smashes bones on rocks.
  • On cliff sides.
