Sarcogyps calvus (Red-headed Vulture, Asian King Vulture)

Two Vultures Circling. The internet has changed things. Back in the day, after a day of taking photos, I would hit the books and look up each bird I saw using the local guide books. Now I can use google images to find unique features and then work backwards to be sure I have the correct species.
