Birds on the peak

Alpine Choughes (Pyrrhocorax graculus) are sitting on the top of Mangart. They are the beggars of the Alps: you can find them anywhere if there is a good chance of getting some food from hikers.

Name

The birds are called Alpine Choughs (or Yellow-billed Choughs), lat. Pyrrhocorax graculus - as far as I know, at least.
