White-rumped, Long-billed and Cinereous Vultures

These photographs were taken by Nangal-based Mr Parbhat Bhatti from Rainy Khad, Pathankot, Punjab on 6th January 2008. On the top two photographers, Cinereous Vulture can also be seen. There are a few Longbilled (Indian or Slender-billed) Vultures also in the group.
Hope they survive, unlike from other parts of the country.

White-rumped Vulture sighted in Pubjab

Mr S. S. Bajwa from Hoshiarpur, Punjab, a member of birds-chandigarh has sent wonderful photographs of White-rumped Vultures. These have been posted at birds-chandigarh by Narbir Kahlon. Hope these (according to Mr Bajwa there might be about 200 of them) birds surive. One picture also shows an active nest with a pair perched nearby.
