White-rumped Vultures from Punjab by Mr. S.S. Bajwa

On 4th August 09, a new born male buffalo-calf died next to my farm near Pathankot town in Punjab. Believing it should be free from any harmful substance which might effect the gyps vultures as the calf was from a reliable cattle keeper, I got it placed at a site which was often visited by the birds. I observed that the first day the Egyptian vultures visited the carcass and on the second day the White-rumped Vultures numbering about 50 visited the site.
These two photos were taken on 4th Aug 09.
