Was fortunate to spend a few days in the Vulture hide at Giants Castle recently. What a magical experience.
Encountered a Cape Vulture that has no left eye. The bird came in and grabbed a bite before leaving. It returned about 30 min. later, this time not taking anything. Also saw it in the air the next day, it was clear that it has already eaten somewhere else and just came to rest on cliffs just out of sight. The eye was not recently lost as there is no signs of any fresh wound. The bird appears to be in good shape. I am interested to know if anybody else have encounter this bird before at Giants Castle or any other such cases.

Love your photos!

I have never seen a blind vulture before!

Wonder if any other visitors to that hide have seen this bird?

Cheers,
Gordon
