Meet Niebla, a young Cinereous Vulture growing up in Guararrama National Park near Madrid.

His name means "mist" or "fog". I have always seen Niebla referred to as a male, but he is a very good sized juvie, and may be a female. He has exceptionally attentive and gentle parents, who continue to watch over him and bring food for him.

Niebla fledged on August 29, but he has been returning to the nest to eat, to rest and to sleep at night. Two nights ago, he did not return to the nest at night for the first time. Yesterday, he turned six months old, and was back at the nest last night. He was banded by SEO/BirdLife with a yellow band on his left leg.
