All these words have origin in latin, greek or both and griffon is not an exception. Then, in Middle French it turned in grifon and in middle English in griffoun. It means curled, curved or having a hooked nose. study
In Portugal we call grifo to the griffin but also to this specific vulture. Very Happy
Curiously, we also call grifo to a bristled chicken! Laughing I hope my googling was helpful. Now, I need to know why do you call goose vulture to this bird? Isn't a turkey vulture already enough for an aviary? Wink

Very interesting to know the name in all these languages and why it is also called a goose vulture. Very Happy
An interesting point of this figure is also the pose, thvultures, are associated with a negative reputation. It is so evident that they are often replaced by eagles in biblical and other historical documents. It happens although it is obvious sometimes that those are references to vultures. Mojo, gave to the figure, not the usual "carrion" pose but an imperial pose used to these emblematic eagles! Obviously this is a vigilant pose, commonly observed in historical times, where vultures were a common presence among occidental civilizations.I hope it works to demystify this traditional repugnance among new generations. Idea

Amazing! Perfect! Sad(o)): Sad(o)): Sad(o)):
I love the feathers.
I can't even decide which one is better, the emu or this vulture.
I think they're both number one. (Is it possible that more than one items are all number one? Very Happy )

Wow, it's interesting t read name of this bird in many different languages. In Poland the name is not connected with goose neither with griffin/griffon but it sound "sep plowy" what is connected with it's color and means fawn vulture. Very Happy Wink

It's rather strange indeed, but both in Russian, Ukrainian and Polish languages this bird isn't called nor grif, neither vulture. It's a "syp" here...
The word "syp" is derived from the Russian "sipet'" (to have a frog in throat). Maybe the voice of this bird is somewhat special?
Here's a link for Russian-speaking friends: http://earaza.ru/wps/wp-content/uploads/WildBirds12_13.pdf (see page 87).

In Catalan it's "voltor comú" or simply "voltor" that means just "common vulture". In Spanish is also connected with its color, its name is "buitre leonado" that means "vulture with lion colour".

Yes, but "jastreb" and vulture belong to different subfamilies...
Here, it's called "Beloglavi sup". Beloglavi means White-headed but what's Sup is a mystery to me Very Happy

Robert, I don't know what Sup is, but we call it jastreb if it's the species Gyps fulvus is beloglavi jastreb. Pics I took at the Ljubljana ZOO:

It is really interesting. As it is called sip in Western Asia, it is natural seeing derivations of these words in languages of western Europe. Anyway I also have no idea the origin of the word. Very Happy
Also it is great to see that in some languages the color determines the name what matches perfectly with the scientific name Gyps fulvus once fulvus is a reference to the sandy color. study
I told previously the name grifo for Portuguese language but here we always use a lot of names to the same species what turns sometimes very confuse to read about them. Here we also call it abutre fouveiro that means also fawn vulture. Very Happy

As to the name "sup", "seep", "sep" etc., see my comment above. The reason maybe the same as in Russian/Ukrainian.

Yes, I know, I didn't say that you made a mistake. It was just strange to me because in our language Jastreb is a name for Goshawk
