This year, the bird chosen for the poster of the Festival is the Egyptian Vulture (Neophron percnopterus). It is also elected by SPEA as the "Bird of the Year 2016". This is one of soaring birds passing by Sagres every year during September and early October, especially immatures and juveniles. Its population has declined in Portugal and Spain, about 30% in the past three decades due to habitat degradation, human disturbance and persecution, currently lying in danger of extinction
