A large vulture that is all black except for the yellowish, bare head and bill. The legs are flesh colored and the feet white.
These are common in the Amazon rainforest of SE Ecuador. This one was sitting on a stump not 25 feet from the house.
The vultures, like many non-hunted birds don't readily show alarm at the approach of people. It was quite easy to get some pictures from the door of the house.
