Discover Tours

The Alpine chough is a beautiful yet elusive bird that lives in the alpine mountains of Europe and Asia. It's most easily identified by its red and black plumage and distinctive call, which sounds like "churk". The choughs are monogamous creatures who mate for life, sometimes up to 40 years. They typically lay one egg per year but they will do so more often if their first clutch was unsuccessful or predated upon.

The Alpine chrough is an important part of the ecosystem as it eats insects such as grasshoppers, flies, beetles, caterpillars and spiders. This helps control outbreaks of pests such as locusts which can devastate crops on a large scale.
