Birds of Panama - large bird
The King Vulture (Sarcoramphus
papa) is a large bird found in
Central and South America and lives
predominantly in tropical lowland
forests stretching from southern
Mexico to northern Argentina. The
King Vulture soars for hours
effortlessly, only flapping its
wings infrequently. While in flight,
its wings are held flat with
slightly raised tips, and from a
distance the vulture can appear to
be headless while in flight.
