Another white Crowned Sparrow, I was trying to get a Humming bird photo but the only one I saw in two hours was gone before I could move the camera to my eye, decided to settle for anything I could get.

Man, that would be so annoying.

Black vultures at the Everglades in Florida destroy the rubber of wipers and door seals. There can be hundreds of vultures in some places, busy working their destruction. The rangers there don't do anything about it because the birds are protected migratory birds.

The problem is that these birds are intelligent and curious but don't have hands, so they explore everything with their beaks - taking things apart in the process. It is said that many shark attacks occur for the same reason - the shark sees something, has a bite and in most cases probably thinks to itself - Yuck!! and moves on, but the damage to the human and the shark's image is done.

My Fav Bird - the Fabulous Kea. Smart as a primate, the world's only mountain parrot, lives in the alpine regions of NZ. They mate for life, love to play and can demolish a car by unscrewing bolts and screws, removing rubber trim and windshield wipers and will decimate your shoe laces if you leave your boots outside. But they are absolutely fascinating to watch...

The first image is sized as taken with the Canon EOS R6

The second is heavily cropped, so really the R6's 20MP sensor did OK, I reckon!

Thanks Tom for making the effort to comment, it's very much appreciated.
Here is a shot of one of them blatantly attacking the shoe laces of a ranger. While we were talking, it followed him around, zoning in on his boots to get at his laces.

That is quite humorous,Trevor. I'm amazed how tame they are. They seemingly have no fear of humans.

I can see where that would be a seriously annoying problem, Ed! Do people carry covers that they throw over their vehicles when the black vultures are around?

The worst place for black vultures in my experience is at the Royal Palm location in the Everglades, FL. They have tarps there with bungy cords, and they help a lot, but you have to get there before they are all taken. You can also protect your vehicle by removing the wiper blades and by closing the car doors on t-shirt and stuff like that.

It is interesting that you are not allowed to feed wildlife, but you are not allowed to disturb a bird eating non-nutritious rubber off your vehicle. -?

Many of our rules pertaining to wildlife certainly don't make a lot of sense, Ed.

Rob this is superb and shows some special moments in the life of huge birds I'll never see.
Beautiful details. You've got a good vantage point.
Enjoy them all. Thanks for sharing.

A pair of Pied-billed Grebes in breeding colors were showboating pretty well down at the marsh.
