Black Vulture

While Black Vultures are not the most attractive birds in the Jaltemba Bay area, they do serve a necessary function – that of disposing of dead and rotting flesh (yuck!) and are basically the garbage guts of the earth. Appropriately, I took this photo at the landfill in Rincón de Guayabitos. The landfill and surrounding area is a place where I have spotted many different species of birds!

    while not the most beautiful bird in the world, they deserve our respect… without them, we would see and smell the rotting flesh all over the beach. I find them interesting and in a way, there is a beauty in the ugly… thank god for the work that they perform… they deserve our respect.
