Lappet-faced Vulture Torgos tracheliotos (124)
(Swartaasvoël)
Experiences with species

These large Vultures are "king of the carcass". The other Vultures tend to sit back and wait for them to open up the hide with their huge powerful bill. They are one of my favourite birds of the bushveld, even as ugly as they are!
