Hi guys and gals!

I've got some vultures captured on the webcams and would like to ask you to confirm ID or correct it, please.

Image

Both Cape Vultures?



Image

Lappet-faced vulture?




Image

White-backed vultures?
Possibly white-faced vultures in there as well?

Thanks for you help! :mrgreen:

Probably Cape at Nossob and Satara as you suggest.
consider White-headed at Satara. Heads are bare in Lappet-faced and less white around the neck and pouch.
A mixture allright at Orpen. could even be a Lappet-faced end from left.
You are on your own with White-faced. Not heard of that.

Sorry, Maxwell, I meant white-headed of course. :slap:

Thank you for your help! I thought white-headed for the Satara one at first as well,
but the legs look so much like lappet-faced. :?

i'd say the nossob one is white-backed, not cape.
otherwise in agreement with max :thumbs_up:

I don't see any White-headed on the Orpen picture.

I still think WH at Satara. Their trousers are white too.
