African White-backed Vulture

Gyps africanus

Animals of Africa Back
The most numerous of African vultures, these birds are known for their croaks, signaling that a carcass has been spotted. They will then gather together and feed in a large flock of up to 100 individuals. Their nests tend to be small for their size, but both the male and female will help to incubate the eggs, and later to feed the chick(s); usually just one egg is laid.


Feeds mostly on carcasses and bone fragments
