The Bearded Vulture is probably one of the most incredible and amazing bird which can be observed in the Iberian Peninsula. In the Picos de Europa National Park, like in other European mountains, the Bearded Vulture became extinct in the early-20th century due to the use of poisons and the indiscriminate hunting. Since then, this astonishing scavenger bird only could  be seen on Pyrenees.

From 2005, the Bearded Vulture Foundation (FCQ) is developing a project for its reintroduction in Picos de Europa National Park. As a result of this project, the Bearded Vulture is returning to these incredible mountains. Nowadays, these young birds released every year from 2010 are getting that other wild Bearded Vultures arrived from the Pyirenees can be observed easily in these mountains.
