Several species of vultures do their grisly work in Tanzania and Kenya: the Nubian or Lappet-Faced; the White-Backed; the Ruppell’s-Grifon; and the Marabou Stork. All are often found together competing—loudly—for a place on a kill. They often fight with hyenas and jackals for a place. With their sharp hooked beaks, piercing eyes and dietary habits, they are nature’s grim trash collectors.
