An American Black Vulture warming up in the sun. Vultures spend a great deal of time sunbathing or taking water baths as despite their feeding habits they are scrupulously clean birds. The only area they cannot reach to adequately clean is the head, and nature assists there by ensuring there are no feathers on that area to become covered in gore.
