[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Shot of the Indian Vulture surprisingly nesting at the entrance of the Meherangarth Fort, Jodhpur...

A robust and scruffy scavenger, the Indian vulture has a pale yellow bill, pale eye rings and a sturdy, black neck and head, with pale down and a white neck-ruff. The feathers on the back and upperwings are brown, fading to cream on the underside. The thighs are feathered, matching the underside in colour. Juveniles have a dark bill, pinkish head and neck with pale down and brown and cream streaked undersides. (The Indian vulture is classified as Critically Endangered!)
