Great capture! The textures of its feathers are amazing. I've been looking at it for some time trying to figure out what is where with those ruffled feathers..

They won't eat carrion, it has to be fresh. They're not like vultures, they won't eat rotten meat. They also like french fries, hamburgers, oatmeal cookies, and anything they can cadge from you. Sort of like cats.
