Egyptian vulture White Scavenger Vulture Pharaoh Chicken


Location: Artis Zoo. Amsterdam

Close up photograph of an Egyptian vulture, also known as White Scavenger Vulture or Pharaoh's Chicken.

This shot was taken in Artis Zoo, in Amsterdam. That's actually the reason of its white plumage, as wild birds usually appear soiled with a rusty or brown shade to the white plumage, derived from mud or iron-rich soil.
