Notes
Content : Printed on border: "The bearded vulture, or lammergeyer, lives in the rocky parts of South Europe and Western Asia. It eats dead animals, rats, mice, and hares, and sometimes steals lambs from the fold. Sometimes it kills the chamois goat by knocking it off the rock with its long wings. It is called the bearded vulture, on account of the long tufts of black hair-like feathers which fall from the nostrils and beneath the beak. The bird is greyish brown, dotted with white above, and white below."
