VULTURES FOLLOW UP …

I thought I share some of the pictures I took during my session with the vultures on the Buffalo carcass …

DINING IN…

… has a totally different meaning for vultures. Watch this short video clip with a White-backed Vulture emerging (very quickly) from inside a Buffalo carcass!

Taken yesterday at Thanda Safari.

GROUNDED!

This Lapped-faced Vulture was grounded in today’s heavy rains, which gave me a chance to get a close-up portrait! … and it is still raining at Thanda …

THE EVENING POST – VULTURE ARGUMENTS

I have not often heard vultures to be that vocal. There was not much left of this Kudu kill and there were docents of vultures around competing for the food. Listen to their chattering and hissing sounds.

Enjoy your evening 😊

THE EVENING POST – HOODED VULTURE

A few people have asked me about the bird in the sunset shot I posted this morning. It was this Hooded Vulture. It was drinking at the waterhole before taking off into the sunset.

Have a good evening!
