Alpine chough

Pyrrhocorax graculus


many coughs flew around the refuge, sometimes resting on the rocky cliff nearby, many were shy, but some let me approach them enough to snap some pictures. I tried to catch some particular moments such as 1) flight 4) cleaning 5)moment before flight. I also saw on them the translucent membrane on the eye that permits them to fly wothout ruining the delicate organ.
