Media notes

Sunbathing Greater Yellow-headed Vulture (Cathartes melambrotus) on Rupununi River sand bar. Difficult to decide whether a lesser or greater YHV, but I've decided this was a big bird! Very commonly seen over the Rupununi river and Savannah. Elevation: 103 m. Date added to IBC: December 3, 2016.
