The Lappetfaced Vulture

Torgos tracheliotus

Grande.Molto simile come dimensioni al nostro Avvoltoio Monaco,
stesso peso e apertura alare tra i 250 ei 295 cm.
E'comune,ma trovarne uno in posa fotogenica non è frequente.
L'ultima foto è di Roberta.
---Massive.Very similar to the european Monk (or Black) Vulture,
same weight and wingspan (250 - 295 cm).
Common,but it's not easy to find one alone for a good shot.
Last picture from Roberta.

Not exactly pretty birds but great photos. They are such powerful birds with their beaks and claws.
We are off to Casablanca next week for 9 days, hopefully we may see some sun over the Christmas period. Have a great Christmas and we wish you all the best for 2013. Diane
