This video, recorded in Gambia, says about itself:
31 August 2017
Hooded Vulture is listed as Critically Endangered by the IUCN red list. It is the only member of the genus Necrosyrtes and is native to sub-Saharan Africa. It is a scruffy-looking, small vulture with dark brown plumage, a long thin bill, bare crown, face and fore-neck, and a downy nape and hind-neck. It typically scavenges on carcasses. Although this is a common species, numbers of these birds are decreasing rapidly.
The video shows a cattle egret as well.
I was privileged to see both species while in Gambia.
