I think the reason for the Vultures eating the rubber is, they may have aquired a taste for the rubber. The professor in the video could be right too. I think food is scarce during winter months, so the vultures discovered a new flavor.

I like rubber as well, and yes, it was an acquired taste from years and years of sucking and chewing on it.

Lol ,can you eat and digest rubber?

I know my friend "Armando" eats it ,among other things but didn't think a vulture would.

Vultures fly all over Miami-dade and Hialeah as both Cuban run cities are more dead than alive due to zero political and police standards, dying a slow death due to Cuban politicos.

I never stated that a Vulture digests the rubber, simply stated that they maybe have developed a taste for it. Your friend Armando sounds desperate to be eating rubber. LOL

Lol yes Armando is desperate, he is a looser who ran from his failed island 54 years ago only to than spread the same corruption in Miami which caused the revolution in Cuba and if that is not bad enough, he began eating rubber items which he finds on street corners around ladies of the evening .

He often post here and it is obvious that he is high on rubber .

Well now...
That was a weird read.
:-/

I seem to remember a Nat. Geo. or Disney show about wild parrots (?) tearing up tourists cars this same way many years back.
Looked around some and can't find a reference to it online.

Down here we have an abundance of crow/raven type birds known as Grackles.
Pretty black birds with an iridescent sheen to their feathers.

But Oh, what nasty buggers they are!
They swarm in flocks of hundreds.
Their call/song would make a chainsaw sound like Mozart.
And they seem to crap two times for every bite they eat.
And the droppings are very acidic, they will fade the paint on your car if left for any time in the hot Texas sun.

The only good they serve has come apparent the past few years.
They are the first and most likely birds you will find dead or sick.
Then you know you have the West Nile or Bird Flu in the neighborhood.
