We begin this post with the Cinereous Vulture, which is perhaps the largest bird of prey. A winter visitor of North Eastern India, it has a “Near Threatened” conservation status. A couple of causes, which have led to this status include habitat destruction and disturbance at nest sites. You can check out more about Vultures in our recent post here.
