Seafare Vulture - Quick Concept by Ahkward Seafare Vulture - Quick Concept by Ahkward
So I did this in like an hour, don't hate me. ;n; I have so much to do. This is a quick rough idea of what the vulture I want to create for my "Designing Nature" class assignment asks for. We have to create an avian species that makes sense for the real world. No hybrids, fantasy things, supernatural, anthro, etc etc things. All logical and explainable by science. :l

I did a lot of research on vultures and there didn't seem to be any heavily marine based ones, so I made one. :L I will be changing the wings to have yellow on the tips and not the whole thing. XD I think it'd look far better. The yellow is more of a warning and scare tactic to help it scare of things that either it wants to steal food from or wants to protect what it has. These vultures are only semi-scavengers and can fish when needed, thus the strong feet than most vultures would have. Without them, it'd be hard to grip and catch fish or other small birds. 

That's the idea anyway. e____e The class liked it, so I guess I have the green light. XD

Oh I absolutely love this, honestly I didn't even realize that this was a creation, I thought it was real! Vultures are so cool, and it'd make sense that there'd be one that hung out near the ocean...especially with all the fish and whatnot that can get washed up onshore.

I like it! I thought it was a real thing at first, like 'oh cool, I didn't know there were seagull looking vultures!' But then I read your description, haha
