King with Crows

King with Crows

I saw this handsome Red Headed Vulture (Sarcogyps calvus) or the Asian King Vulture..an un-common sighting these days elsewhere..in Kanha the other day, being mobbed by 5 to 6 Jungle or Large-billed Crows. The Vulture was agressively defending itself and refused to give up it’s shady perch,which it must have sought after a good meal. The time was about 10.30 am and it was already quite warm..this sighting was at Bishanpura meadow.
