on my recent trip to MNC I came across a white backed vulture which had obviously lost one (the socket was completely white, without any movement whatsoever), which made me wonder: does losing an eye impede / effect a bird's ability to navigate / fly?!


I'd also like to confirm that the ttwo birds in the middle and on the are indeed Rüppel's Vultures.
