Animals crave sustenance, but are themselves not always good judges of same. As experiments with rats and drug-laced water bottles, or frat boys and pizza, have proven. Heck, let a herd of suburban soccer moms loose near a pitcher of margaritas and watch the mayhem unfold, or tourists from the rest of our country inside a place where sweet'n sour pork and kung pao shrimp can be prepared for their delectation.
So also birds of prey.
Sydney Fylbert, the majestic turkey vulture in the photo, is proud of his hunting skills. He has caught breakfast! Now we can breakfeast!
I haven't the heart to tell him it wasn't alive. Ever.
Or that he'll need fingers to open it.
He looks so pleased.
