Description
As a lion walks away from a its kill, a huge bird circles down from the sky. The bird's bald head and neck tell everyone it's a vulture. Vultures are fascinating--and misunderstood. Most people associate them with death and decay. Actually, because vultures clean away the bodies of dead animals, they help keep disease from spreading. Their bald heads make them one of the cleanest birds. One Native American tribe once believed that certain vultures' feathers could heal people. Nowadays, people are beginning to recognize the importance of vultures. Many work hard to protect vultures from those who don't understand the birds' role in nature. In Vultures, Lynn M. Stone has combined stunning photographs and lively details to reveal even more about these magnificent birds.
