Hey dude, OK, I know I’m just a vulture, but I am the King Vulture – that’s why I’m blessed with these fine threads and special colors ;o)!

Time for colors in this winter :o) – Facts: The King Vulture (Sarcoramphus Papa) is a colorful bird, found in the lowland tropical forests of Central America. It is a member of the New World vulture family Cathartidae. This species received this name because it often makes the initial cut into a fresh carcass. King vultures were popular figures in the Mayan codices as well as in local folklore and medicine. Although currently listed as least concern by the IUCN, they are decreasing in number, due primarily to habitat loss.
