Breagyps Beak

Breagyps Beak

Jul 24, 2012

This bird beak, recently recovered from Box 1, is from an extinct vulture of the genus Breagyps. Close in size to living condors, Breagyps has a distinctive long beak and is one of the rarer vultures from Rancho La Brea. This is the first identified element of this vulture from Project 23, and only the fourth beak ever found at Rancho La Brea.
