Ek sal voor op die wa wees en die volgende vraag stel (I will drive the oxwagon)

Name three raptor species that use spider webs to build their nests. For a bonus point, why do they use it?

An answer is due here, so here it is. It is the two species of Chanting Goshawks and the Gabar Goshawk. Anyone with a question? (but if you wait too long, I will execute a hijack and ask another one.)

I know the heaviest is the Kori Bustard. The longest wing span is that of an Albatross.


And with this, my 3000th post

Which Vulture is likely to eat first at a carcass and which specie last? Why is that?

Generally :
First - the one with the largest bill to open up tough skin - lappet faced.
Last - the one with the smallest bill - hooded .

Ndloti is bit slow here :D , so will ask another one.

My previous question was who EATS first at a carcass but which vulture normally ARRIVES at a carcass first?
