Long Billed Vultures have suffered a 97-99% decline in their population and are considered critically endangered.
It is a special joy seeing them nesting in these inaccessible crags and crevices.
Largest colony of Long Billed Vultures is in Chambal.
All birds don’t look like they have come out of a spa. Migratory birds on their return journeys can look faded & jaded. Among leaf warblers it is called the ‘worn’ plumage. See this Sulphur-bellied Warbler showing so little of its yellow eyebrow & underparts.
