This scene occurs in the plains of Belén, in Extremadura - Spain.
Both Monk and Eurasian Griffon Vultures are feeding behind an abattoir.
Numerous vultures were coming from Monfragüe Park, at about 40 km from the plains.
The funniest view is the line of vultures waiting for a better place, close to the source.
Griffon Vultures seem to be dominant, but the disputes occur between raptors of the same species.
They were relatively far from me and the pictures are not very good, but the scene was very interesting to observe.
