Hooded vulture (Necrosyrtes monachus)

Hooded vultures are common across sub-Saharan Africa. Habitats include open plains, savannas, forests, coastal areas and villages. They are carnivores.

The scientific name, Necrosyrtes monachus, means a "monk-like (bird) that drags away the dead." The common name derives from the wool-like down that covers the lower throat and rear of the neck. Old World vultures (from Asia, Europe and Africa), such as the hooded vulture, are not closely related to vultures from North and South America.
