Black Vultures; common, useful and social birds.
Meet the largest and most dominant vulture of Kabalebo: the King Vulture.
That is quite a scare!
This Golden Tegu, by no means, scared this Black Vulture at the ocelot feeder. It almost gave it a heart attack by sneaking up to him from behind.
While looking through all the video's and pictures from the ocelot trap cam, I came across these pictures of the Black Vulture and the Golden Tegu. It all happened in a split second, but those were such pretty pictures to share.
A couple of days ago the trophy cam captured a photobomb. It was clear to see who wanted to be in the picture. I enjoyed it very much!
Black Vultures (Coragyps atratus) are the smallest amongst the vultures. As they are no songbirds or colorful birds they are often neglected by onlookers. They may not be able to mesmerize you with a serenade and they may not delight you with 'electrifying' colorful feathers, but they do are useful for the environment.
