Vultures are carrion birds that can be found throughout the drier areas of Kalimdor — seeking carnage upon which to feed. The mottled scavengers have been known to aid the vile harpies from time to time — drawn by the promise of freshly slain flesh and blood. They have also been seen in Outland, but with two heads.
Boulderfist clan legend recounts a cloud of carrion birds following ogre warriors through the Dark Portal during the Second War; it may be that all two-headed scavengers in Azeroth are their descendants.
