Chewa's Flock is a group of vultures that are featured in Vulture Shock. In the beginning of the story, Chewa and Choyo run into Kopa, the prince of the Pride Lands. But as the flock gathers round to share in the meal, Chewa recognizes Kopa for his true title. He refuses to let the other vultures harm the cub, and orders his minions to put Kopa in a high spiky nest, from which he cannot escape. With Chewa at the head, the flock makes a plan to ransom Kopa in exchange for food. The Buzzard Boyz, however, take pity on the cub and secretly lead Simba and Nala to his nest, where they free him and sentence the flock to a hearing of a solo performed by the Buzzard Boyz every week.
