Vulture Bird

Vulture Bird Become Rare


There are two types of culture bird, including Californian and Andrean condors, and Old World Vultures. The characteristic of this bird have bald head, defoid of normal feathers. Vulture bird rare attack healthy animals, but may kill the wounded or sick animals. This bird wait for a larger scavenger to eat first, vast numbers have been seen upon battlefields.

Vultures are large birds of prey that live mainly as scavengers on carrion. They are divided into two groups, the new world vultures, family Cathartidae, and the old world vultures, subfamily Aegypiinae, family Accipitridae. Both groups are placed in the order Falconiformes, together with hawks and eagles, and old world vultures, however are of more ancient evolutionary origin and have been linked genetically to the storks. The combined classification resulted from superficial similarities produced by convergent evolution; thus the head and neck of all vultures are usually bare except for a thin covering of down, and both groups have weak feet adapted more for walking than clutching. Bills of New World vultures, however, are relatively weak of the Old World vultures are generally much stronger.

New world vulture species include the turkey vulture, Cathertes aura, and black vulture, Coragyps atratus, both widespread in the Americas; the king vulture, Sarcoramphus papa of tropical forest regions; and two South American Cathartes species. In the United States, vultures are also called buzzards. Turkey vultures depends more on eyesight for funding carrion. The tow Condor species include the California condor, Gymnogyps californianus, and the Andrean Condor, Vulture grypthus, which are among the world's largest flying birds.

Old world vultures inhabit the warrier parts of Europe, all of Africa, and the drier parts of Asia. They are most common in mountainous or open country and are seidon found in forests or in areas with high rainfall. All are carrion eaters except for the palm-nut vulture, Gyphohierax Angolensis, which feeds principally on the fruit of the oil palm.
