This is the largest of the “Breeding Birds of Switzerland” pictures, which were intended for the subsequently canceled CH91 national exhibition. The bearded vulture, once extinct and now once again native to the Swiss Alps with dozens of breeding pairs, represents a great success for the preservation of biodiversity and nature conservation. The picture of the two adult birds looks almost like a scientific illustration from an old edition of Brehm’s Animal Life.
