The Vulturine Guinea Fowl, like all Guinea Fowl, are native to Africa. Although their unfeathered head gives them the name Vulturine, other Guinea Fowl species also have unfeathered heads.
The body plumage is dark with an intricate pattern of pearls and mesh, similar to the well-known Helmeted cousins, but they also have a short brown hairstyle and beautiful blue upper body streaks.
The combination of long neck with stuck out feathers, large beak and bald head is vulture-like.
They enjoy window shopping.
Crested Guinea Fowl
Unlike other Guinea Fowl, the several subspecies of the Crested and the Plumed have curly feathers on the top of the head.
The nominal Crested above, known as the Kenya Crested Guinea Fowl, has a blue lower face and collar with a red upper face. It also has blue spots on its body plumage rather than white.
