This is the best i can find.


White-headed vulture
"It is an adaptable carnivore, not only feeding on carrion but also catching its own prey and stealing the food of other birds (kleptoparasitism). When scavenging, it is often the first at the carcass, dominant over most other vultures excluding the larger Lappet-faced vulture, but generally staying away from the frenzy at the carcass, instead stealing from other scavengers and feeding on the food they drop. It hunts a variety of prey, including the following animals:"

Hi all

Is it not the Lappet-faced Vulture that arrives at a carcass first in order to open up the skin with that huge beak?

The vulture that sees the carcass first will be the one first on the scene.

No no no, some vultures arrive there first, but they don't start eating immediately. They wait for the big guys to arrive to tear open the carcass before they start to feed.

:thumbs_up: Hooded Vulture it is. Because they are not that much dependend on warm air currents as the bigger vulture species, to get them airborne, they are normally first to take off to search for a carcass.

How long for a Bateleur to get its adult colours? Maybe a bit easy.

Easy one.
Which bird sometimes kidnaps the chicks of other breeding pairs and then raises them as their own?
