Jeff Wendorff's bird photography portfolio of vultures from the family, Cathartidae.


The vulture species in Jeff's portfolio include:

  • Black Vulture
  • Hooded Vulture
  • Turkey Vulture
  • White-backed Vulture
  • Palm-nut Vulture
  • Ruppell's Griffon Vulture
  • Lappet-faced Vulture


The collective nouns for vultures can be cast, committee, meal, vortex, venue and even a wake. I think that I will add a morgue to the list!
