Gier Eagle: Heb. raham "parental affection,"
(Leviticus 11:18; Deuteronomy 14:17) R.V., "vulture",
a species of vulture living entirely on carrion. "It is about the size
of a raven; has an almost triangular, bald, and wrinkled head, a strong
pointed beak, black at the tip, large eyes and ears, the latter
entirely on the outside, and long feet." It is common in Egypt, where
it is popularly called "Pharaoh's chicken" (the Neophron percnopterus),
and is found in Palestine only during summer. Tristram thinks that the
Hebrew name, which is derived from a root meaning "to love," is given
to it from the fact that the male and female bird never part company.
