VULTURE

A large bird of prey, belonging to the genus hawks, and including a great many species. It is pronounced unclean by Moses, Leviticus 11:14 Deuteronomy 14:13. See BIRDS. The vulture has a naked or downy head, a bare neck and long wings, and is disgusting to every sense, especially to the smell. It is a carrion bird, though not exclusively, and has extraordinary powers of vision. Scarcely can an exhausted camel fall on it route and die, before numbers of these filthy scavengers show themselves in the distance, hastening to the spot, Job 28:7.
