The Vulturine Guineafowl

For a minute, I forgot about this challenge, and since it’s almost to the end, I decide to push to finish it. This post might be the shortest in the series I’ve done so far.ย 

The blue on this bird is STUNNING!!ย

๐Ÿฆย This bird is the largest and most colorful extant species of guineafowl.

๐Ÿฆย The Vulturine Guineafowl got its name from its appearance.

๐Ÿฆย Because of its bare skin of head and neck, this guineafowl can sometimes be confused for a vulture despite its beautiful plumage. I for one mistook it for one when I first came across the photo.

๐Ÿฆ Although the female is smaller than the male, both sexes are similar in plumage.

La Pintade vulturine est une espรจce d'oiseaux galliformes de la famille des numididae, seul membre du genre Acryllium.

๐Ÿฆย The female lays between 13 and 15 eggs, but two females can lay in the same nest.ย
