I believe this is a Himilayan Vulture. While many mammals have been making a comeback lately, Vulture in general are facing very hard times.
Normally, while out looking for one animal, I'll see some other things around. This time, it was only the vultures circling.
I often thought they were just waiting for one of us to slip off the cliffs we were usually hanging from.
