Gypus bengalensis is commonly called White-backed or Bengal vulture. It is called Gidh in Hindi.

Gypus bengalensis

It is a heavy durty blackish-brown rather repulsive-looking creature. Head and neck are naked and scrawny. The bill is stout hooked at the tip with soft naked cere at its base. Mandibles are sharped-edged. The Gypus feet are provided with sharp claws and are usually adapted for grasping. When at rest and while banking in the air the white bank is conspicuous and diagnostic. In overhead flight abroad whitish band stretching across the underside of the wings broken in the middle by the dark body, help in identification. Immature Gypus are brown without the white back.

Gypus's Nature

The eyesight is remarkably keen and sense of smell is poor or non-existent. It quarters the heavens sailing majestically for hours on end on out spreed motionless wings, scanning the countryside food. As scavengers, vultures are of the greatest usefulness to men. It lays only a single egg, white in colour sometimes speckled and spotted with reddish brown. This vulture nests in large trees standing near or along the sides of roads buildings enormous platforms of leafy sticks and twigs. It is found everywhere in peninsular India regardless of the nature of the country, but it avoids humid everygreen forest.
