The vulturine guineafowl is a large (61–71 centimetres (24–28 in)) bird with a round body and small head.

It has a longer wings, neck, legs and tail than other guineafowl. The adult has a bare blue face and black neck, and although all other guineafowl have unfeathered heads, this species looks particularly like a vulture because of the long bare neck and head.

At Bird Park Islamabad, you will be able to see their growth and true beauty in their natural environment and get to know up close how beautiful they are. We invite all of the birds lover to visit our bird aviary which is the third largest bird aviary in the world and see and enjoy it in its natural environment.
