King Vulture - Sarcoramphus papa

The King Vulture, Sarcoramphus papa (Falconiformes - Cathartidae), is a species of vulture found in the southern part of Mexico and throughout Central and South America to northern Argentina.

The most noticeable difference between king vultures and other vultures is that they are largely covered with white plumage. King vultures are large birds, their wingspan can reach up 1.98 m. Their bare head, neck, beak and muttle are red, orange and yellow, with very striking eyes that are straw, white or silver in color. Their beaks have a hooked tip and cutting edges, which are very strong. There are no differences between the males and females of this species.

Technique for making bees ready to eat while on a perch:

  • Position bee so it is held just behind the thorax.
  • Smack bee’s head against perch.
  • Quickly change grip to hold tip of abdomen.
  • Rub tail-end against perch till it and the sting is crushed or ejected.
  • The head is rapped once or twice and the bee can then be swallowed.
