    Asta venea dezorientat din Italia, dupa ce i-au suierat niste alice pe langa capul plesuv, a zis ca e mai bine sa zboare peste tari primitive unde localnicii inca trag cu prastia si dorm in copaci….

  2. mai Liviu… acolo in Banat e ca in alta tara… avem si pusti si case… nu e ca in Dobrogea…


  3. Wow! I wish I could spot such beautiful birds in germany. Most of the time you can only observe crows or other smaller birds.

    In your link you mention that it is called “DE: Gänsegeier”. Not sure if I have ever seen one in bavaria.
