Rüppell's Vulture

They are not the animals people looking for. I saw this Rueppel's vultures during a trip in the Masai Mara in Kenya.

  3. It is necessary scavenging and vultures are actually very useful as well as good looking creatures. Perhaps not everyone agrees.

  4. Wow...incredible images!! They're awesome birds, vultures are. Ya, they may be unattractive...downright ugly for that matter, but a much needed species. Excellent post.

    Thank you for sharing your link at I'd Rather B Birdin' this weekend!!!

  6. I was in Masai Mara once but I can´t remember seeing this vulture. It is actually quite beautiful.

  7. Nice creatures, performing a necessary duty. I guess they need take only one bite at a time. I wonder if it will still be there the next morning.

  8. Nobody's favorite bird, but the vultures are just doing a job nobody else wants to do ;)))!

  9. A good bird is a good bird! Having said that I did find the vultures in India a bit weird - although I understand that they are now much reduced due to the use of a sort of medicine in cows - which kills the vultures.

    PS: sorry for slow reply, I've been away from home because of work!
