Lappet-faced Vulture

Immature White-headed Vulture (and not a Lappet-faced) is on (sky)watch today. Thanks André 🙂

André works for EWT, the Endangered Wildlife Trust in South Africa and manages the Birds of Prey Working Group. André has one of the best jobs in the world. He only just came back from 2 surveys in Kruger National Park, looking for the elusive Pel’s Fishing-owl and other fish-eating birds.

Now, if only we could convince him to start a blog, so we could read about all his adventures. 😉

  1. This is a lovely moody picture – the sky and the vulture are soooo impressive! I guess it was taken in South Africa?


  2. Hi André, well you're the expert :-)I thought it was a Lappet-faced because of the colouring in its face. Thanks, will change the title
