[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Portuguese]
Very big, bigger than eagles. large flies distances and almost gliding without flapping their wings. The
plumage is brownish. The "fingers" of the wings are
easily visible. Gregarious, often formands of some tens of birds. Be confused with the black vulture, which is sometimes associated with it,distinguished primarily by the species shades of brown cream toppings, thecourse neck and wing tips clearly twisted upward.
