Have you ever seen how a juvenile King Vulture looks like? They are all coal-black and it takes them four to five years to reach the adult plumage. Over successive years the plumage gradually transitions into the definitive plumage, which is predominantly white, with black on the lower back and rump, tail, and flight feathers. The white plumage combined with the brightly colored bare skin of the head and neck makes them, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful birds there is! #birds #aves #avesecuador #vulture #kingvulture #cathartidae #neotropicalbirds #birding #birdwatching #birdyourworld #biodiversity #cameratrap #conservation #amazonia
