One of the more charming members of the crow family, the Alpine Chough (pronounced "chuff") is widespread in the mountains of southern Eurasia. It is a proficient scavenger, and has adapted well to human activities, especially ski resorts. This species has been recorded following climbers to 27,000 feet in Nepal - the highest "land" altitude for any bird.
