"The Egyptian Vulture is (in)famous for its ability to break Ostrich eggs to gain access to the contents and, like the Hooded Vulture, is partial to lion scats" from; 'Africa Birds and Birding Sept 1999, volume 4 number 4'

Anyone with a Q?

Since it is all quiet here, I don't think anybody will mind if I ask another (easy) one.

Which bird has achieved notoriety as 'the most destructive bird pest in agriculture anywhere.' How many birds are there estimated to be?
