[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The black vulture (Coragyps atratus) also known as the American black vulture, is a bird in the New World vulture family whose range extends from the southeastern United States to Central Chile and Uruguay in South America.
Relationship with humans:
The black vulture is considered a threat by cattle ranchers due to its predation on newborn cattle.[49] The droppings produced by black vultures and other vultures can harm or kill trees and other vegetation.[50] The bird is also considered a threat to the safety of aerial traffic, especially when it congregates in large numbers in the vicinity of garbage dumps[51] as is the case in the Rio de Janeiro
