himalayan vultures - 9 photos

Himalayan vultures on a road (India)

They were near the carcass of a dead cow that had pretty-much cleaned to the bones. That cow may have been a road-kill.

They only left the head and legs - not soft and meaty enough to their tastes, I guess.

I saw some of those vultures flying right above the road that I was driving on, maybe looking for more road-kills. They are very impressive in size, probably the largest birds I have ever seen.
