The Eurasian Griffon(Gyps fulvus) is listed in CITES Appendix Ⅱ, and poorly studied in China. On June 5th, 2013, we found one Eurasian Griffon hovering at Gaize County, Ngari(33°6′52.2″N, 85°39′9.18″E, alt. 5 021 m) in north Tibet(Fig. 1). Combining with previous records about their distribution and population size(100 to 300 individuals in China), we suggested that the distribution range of Eurasian Griffon might be underestimated, the bird should be continuously distributed from Xinjiang to Tibet, even in the neighboring area of Xinjiang and/or Tibet(Fig. 2).
