Huge, majestic, dark-brown vulture and a rare inhabitant of arid mountains and forests. In flight looks all dark, but with some contrast between the leading edge and trailing edge from below. Soars on flat wings, often slightly drooping with prominent wing fingers and a saw-toothed trailing edge. Juveniles lack the adult’s pale head patches. Imposing and dominant over other vultures at carcasses.
