[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Black Vulture is common from the southern USA, through Central America and throughout most of South America. It can weigh up to about 2 kilos and has a wingspan of up to 1.5 metres. It is a dull black with a bare, grey head with folds of skin and a warty look.

Strongly associated with human activity, it is found around cities, towns and other habitations where it feeds on refuse. Elsewhere it is found along rivers and in open country.

Hi Manuel,
There's something dramatic in your shot: a bare tree draped with black vultures - almost macabre! This shot is also sharp and very well composed.
TFS, regards, Ivan
