We were lucky to witness the courtship of Long-billed Vultures (Gyps indicus) in Ramanagaram (Ramadevarabetta) in January this year (2013). The process of both courtship and mating went on for a few minutes and they started the entire process again. We left the critically endangered vultures with their privacy and with a silent prayer that their brood grows!
It will be recalled that in response to a hard fought conservation battle, the government of Karnataka notified Ramadevarabetta as a Vulture Sanctuary on January 31, 2012. Read more about the notification as well as the case study on Conservation India.
