Flying master and king of the skies of the Pyrenees, the lammergeier doesn't usually wait for the thermal currents to form to rise and is able to do so in the most adverse weather conditions. The strength and determination demonstrated during the snowstorm, images never recorded before, so attest. Its agile flight, its majestic profile, its characteristic beard and its penetrating gaze are increasingly common to see and admire thanks to the efforts for its recovery. This is a tribute to the flight of the lammergeier, the wind's beards.
