Asian wildlife: Cinereous vultures (Aegypius monachus) and nest, Ikh Nart, Mongolia

April 26, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Cinereous vultures (Aegypius monachus) pair and nest in a Siberian elm tree (Ulmus pumila), Ikh Nart Nature Reserve, Dornogovi, Mongolia. Cinereous vultures are categorized as "Near threatened" (IUCN, 2013). Interestingly, Siberian elm is an invasive species in North America and grows much much taller here than the ones I saw in Mongolia!
