Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Uncommon to fairly common but local around steep coastal cliffs topped with spongy grass swaths; also inland locally in mountains of southern Europe. Found in pairs or groups around cliffs, probing in adjacent grassy areas and fields. Flight aerobatic, wheeling and swooping in updrafts. Distinctive if seen well, with bright red bill and legs. Juvenile has shorter, yellowish bill—compare with Alpine Chough. Often in same areas as usually commoner Eurasian Jackdaws; in flight, note broad, deeply fingered wings of chough vs. paddle-shaped wings of jackdaw.
