The River Chambal, flowing through three states of Northern India, forms a Unique Landscape of Rocky Cliffs in the Heart of India .
Mythological Stories of a Curse on the only Permanent River of Rajasthan have ensured the preservation of various Fauna in this pristine River.Unlike most Rivers in India, the Chambal is not worshipped.
Unique Rocky Ravines or Cliffs along the Banks of the Cursed River provide a Safe Haven for The Indian Vulture or Long Billed Vulture,.
Spot the Nest in the picture below.
The Gyps indicus ( Scientific Name) is called Giddh in Hindi and is a Scavenger feeding on carcasses of dead animals. The often shunned Bird thus plays a vital role as an Environmental Cleanser.
A pair of Indian Vultures nests precariously on a small outcrop or Rocky Ledge.
Unfortunately indiscriminate use of Chemicals have literally driven this Species Over the Cliff and the Gyps indicus is today on the Verge of Extinction.
The Dripping White Coating you see is actually the Poop of this Environmentally Vital Bird. It is difficult to discern between the Male and Female of the Bald Headed Indian Vultures, however I guess the Lady is seated in the Featured Image and the picture below .
Nature spreads her charms all over the country , all you need to do is Look and be slightly Lucky to be Enchanted.
