Beautiful highlighting of the individual bird against the "wake". From https://www.thespruce.com/fun-facts-abou... "A group of vultures is called a committee, venue or volt. In flight, a flock of vultures is a kettle, and when the birds are feeding together at a carcass, the group is called a wake."

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated kozoga!

This is a place where leftover meat from a nearby slaughterhouse ( "muladar" in Spanish) are left. Hundreds of vultures come every day.
