The bare head of the condor does not get as filthy when feeding on carrion as a feathered head would although I don't know how it keeps its white ruff so clean!

Some scavengers, including the Andean condor, defecate down their legs and feet. This creates a build-up of uric acid which protects the birds against infection.
