Four African Vultures #Birding #Senegal

Published October 30, 2014 in Field Notes

More vultures: this is a picture I took on the last trip to Senegal. I think it’s a good portrait of four African Vultures. From left to right: Hooded Vulture, Rüppell’s Griffon, Eurasian Griffon and White-backed Vulture. During the next trip It would be good to add a Lappet-faced and a White-headed Vulture on the same picture 🙂 Más buitres: esta es una foto que tomé en el último viaje a Senegal.

Crane Hawk at Pipeline Road #birding #photography #Panama

Another raptor from Panama. Crane Hawks (Geranospiza caerulescens) use those long legs to get their prey from holes in trees, similar to what an African Harrier Hawk would do in Africa. It is a case of convergent evolution. Otra rapaz de Panamá. El Azor Zancudo (Geranospiza caerulescens) usa esos largos tarsos para sacar a sus presas de huecos en los árboles, algo similar a lo que haría un Polyboroides typus en África.
