Hooded Vultures

About beauty can be discussed, but these birds play an important role in African ecosystems. I saw these Hooded Vultures in Gambia. Is fascinating that they have individual facial features.

  1. Great photos - I don't think they are beautiful but they are certainly interesting looking - and interesting too that their faces are all different.
