Description: Vulturine guineafowl ( Acryllium vulturinum ) . This bird is native to eastern Africa , where it inhabits scrub and thicket at the edge of forests . It gets its name from its bare head and neck , which resembles that of a vulture . It can grow to over 60 centimetres in length , making it the largest of the guineafowls . It feeds on seeds , shoots , leaves and small invertebrates , which it finds by scratching the ground with its strong legs . It is a social bird moving in groups except when breeding .
