Red-headed Vulture

Red-headed Vulture

  Sarcogyps calvus
Jim Corbett National Park, Uttarakhand, India - 6 januari 2016

The Red-headed Vulture is one of the critically endangered vulture species in India, but can still be seen with not too much effort in the Corbett area. This bird was kind enough to make a fly-by just below eye-level as we were on guard in the observation tower at Dhikala.
