The picture of flying vulture is very impressive, isn`t it! Actually this one is in the beginning of its flight, because while soar is no need to flap the wings – they clearly rectified on the sides of the body, like a glider, and a vulture hovers in circles.
Its wings are extremely long, almost three times longer than the body, and enough wide. The torso is big with wide and strong chest`s muscles which are able to cope with this such immense wings.
You see that the several longest feathers on the outside end of the wing are parted one from another.
On the other hand, the tail of the vulture is not very long. The legs are long, but as the eyewitnesses say, they are so weak that sometimes break when the vulture is landing. Look at the way bird carries them on the flight – not bended, but not entirely straightened. Vulture`s neck is long, thin, naked, and curved S-shaped even in the flight. Its head is small with curved beak.
