Vadodara: The World Heritage Site of Champaner-Pavagadh is home to a heritage of the avian kind. The tough terrain of Pavagadh mountain is home to threatened vultures and nine of them were spotted in the two-day census exercise conducted by GEER Foundation and forest department.

The teams also monitored a place where the vultures nest in the cliffs during the exercise that ended on Sunday. While officials said the number of vultures spotted at the location are equal to those spotted earlier, they are worried about the fact that only one Egyptian vulture or Khero Gidh that is white-backed was spotted in the mountain valleys.
