Cape Vulture by maryann

rare white-headed vulture Trigonoceps occipitalis is an Old World vulture endemic to Africa.

White-rumped vultures were once a familiar sight in the cities of southern Asia, with a population numbering millions, but its numbers plummeted fast in the 1990s. It was discovered that an anti-inflammatory drug used to treat injured cattle was to blame. When the cattle died, the vultures would ingest the drug and suffer a slow, painful death

Turkey Vulture -  Many people fear or are disgusted by the Vulture.  I personally love them. They are equipped biologically to eat carrion, their bodies and feces have microbial qualities.  Spiritually, they carry off that which no longer serves you.  They soar and help one to view the larger picture. Symbol of Death and Rebirth. They also are symbols of the Sun.  In the morning as the sun rises, Vultures spread their wings out as if in worship
