Huatulco Life was inspired by people with a passion for Huatulco and the Mexican lifestyle. It is a place to find out more information about the region and enjoy the beauty of the Oaxacan coastline through the photo gallery. From time to time, other interesting tidbits about Mexico make their way into the pages of this blog. Enjoy!

The Black Vulture

While not one of the prettiest looking birds in Huatulco, the Black Vulture is a very common sight.

It's range extends from the southwest United State all the way down the Chile in South America.  And although it's rather large with a wing span of nearly 5 feet, it is not the largest of vultures.  It's black plummage and characteristic hooked beak is easily discernible.

This scavenger will feed on pretty much anything and you can see it circling the skies looking for food with its keen eye sight.

Careful not to fall asleep while your tanning on the may find a flock of these circling overhead!
