Distribution

The Egyptian vulture is an Indo-African species. It is distributed widely across areas in the Indian and the Arabian Peninsulas, the vast steppes of Central Asia, the open hills of South Europe and the hot sands of Africa. Nowadays the Egyptian vulture faces extinction and its area of distribution is shrinking. In the past it was wide-spread in Bulgaria with records of pairs nesting even on the hills in the city of Plovdiv. Today one of the last and most secure haven for the species are the Eastern Rhodope Mountains. It can still be seen also in Russenski Lom, on the Provadiisko and Royaksko Plateaus, as well as in Eastern Balkan Mountain.
