Adults sport bald red heads and yellowish or horn-colored beaks. From a distance this big bird is best identified by its rocking soaring flight and long, silvery, two-toned wings held in a distinctive shallow V. This vulture uses enormous nostrils and powerful sense of smell to locate carrion, its major food source.
