Because Pesky Black Buzzards is One of Our All Time Most Hit Post- Buzzards at the Waco Zoo

8 July 2010 at 2:13:31 PM

Of all of the posts we've ever done on this site, black buzzards is one of the top favorites. I guess people everywhere have problems with buzzards, because we get looks from other dang countries. I had been to a predator class some years back and was told that black buzzards will kill cattle and eat them. Have I SEEN them personally do this? No. But it sure has created a lot of comments on that other post.

Anyway, all that's to say that I saw another article about black buzzards this morning, this time about how they are ruining the Waco zoo.

Zoo staff tried putting a network of electrified wires on the roof, but the birds just perched on them, ungrounded and unharmed. The staff tried motorized wind socks that would flop around, but the birds weren’t alarmed.

The birds continued to use their beaks to rip up the soft white roof, which had been designed for energy efficiency but was less durable than traditional asphalt roofs.

I can attest to the fact that the buzzards are pretty cool customers. I have to actually run AT them and look like I might hit them for them to leave wherever they're sitting.  The article says it is not illegal to harrass black buzzards to make them go away, but you can't kill them yourself.
