Large white bird with black flight feathers and bright yellow skin around the eyes. Yellow bill. Looks scrawny.
We were admiring the Kaṇḍāriyā Mahādeva Temple at Khajuraho, Madhya Pradesh, India built during 1017-1029 when this bird came soaring in and flew about above us for a while. Then it deliberately flew to the very top of the temple where it stopped for a while...the sun was in the wrong place for a good photo but it was too good an opportunity to miss. I wondered if it nested there but closer look shows me a hornet's nest...does it feed on these insects?
Also called Egyptian Vulture. I saw one many years ago on a dry river bed in Haridwar, India.
