This beautiful bird is the Himalayan Griffin. If you have hiked up the mountains above Dharamsala, I am sure you would have seen them gliding, oblivious to the rest of the world. I can sit at the edge of a cliff and watch them for hours! *Vultures attract a mate by soaring in the sky around each other. The make shoe off his flying skills by almost touching the female’s wing tip as he flies by to impress her. Normally vultures are social birds that hunt in flicks but when it comes to starting a family, they pair for life.
The Himalayan Griffin is up to 1.5 metres tall with a wingspan up to 3.1 metres.
I hope to someday be able to click a closeup if this gorgeous creature!

White-rumped Vulture, Himalayan Griffon, Slender-billed vulture
The white-rumped vulture (Gyps bengalensis) is an #OldWorldVulture native to South and Southeast Asia. It has been listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List since 2000, as the population severely declined. White-rumped vultures die of renal failure caused by diclofenac poisoning. In the 1980s, the global population was estimated at several million individuals, and it was thought to be "the most abundant large bird of prey in the world". As of 2016, the global population was estimated at less than 10,000 mature individuals.

A group of vultures is called a committee or venue.
In flight, a flock of vultures is a kettle.
When the birds are feeding together at a carcass, the group is called a wake.
The two of them stealthily creeping up on a wake to get a better view is called endearing.

I am not into bird watching, but this fella was worth capturing, swooping towards his prey. I was totally impressed by his >6' wing span!
So what bird is this?? #singapore #jurongbirdpark #himalayangriffon
