Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of
articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Old
World vultures belong to the family Accipitridae, which also
includes eagles, buzzards, kites, and hawks.Old World vultures are
not closely related to the superficially similar New World vultures
and condors, and do not share that group's good sense of smell. The
similarities between the two groups of vultures are due to
convergent evolution rather than a close relationship. They were
widespread in both the Old World and North America, during the
Neogene. Old World vultures are probably a polyphyletic group
within Accipitridae, with Palm-nut Vulture, Egyptian Vulture and
Lammergeier separate from the others.
