Spy vulture story reaches Israeli media

Last week I wrote about a large bird being caught in Saudi Arabia, with markings indicating "Tel Aviv University,"  and the Saudi suspicions that it is part of an Israeli espionage plot. (It was, of course, part of a research program.)

The Hebrew media finally caught up to the story, nearly a week later.

The bird is evidently a vulture.

An English version of the story is here.
