Marabou Storks eat mainly carrion, their bills are not well designed for tearing open carcasses so they wait for the predator or other scavengers, like these Spotted Hyenas to open the carcass (Bhargavi Upadhya)

The Crested Caracara occurs throughout the southwestern United States and Florida, the Caribbean, and Central America south to northern South America. It prefers semi-open to open habitats such as pastures, savannas, and river edges. It is an opportunistic feeder and will consume a wide variety of food items, including carrion, live prey, and vegetable matter. The Crested Caracara is unlikely to be confused within its range; note the conspicuous, broad white collar and face; the black cap, wings and underparts; and the orange facial skin and cere.

Photo by @bypildo "Common Moorhen Fledglings"...
The common moorhen #commonmoorhen is a bird species in the family Rallidae. It is distributed across many parts of the Old World. The common moorhen lives around well-vegetated marshes, ponds, canals and other wetlands. The birds are territorial during breeding season. The nest is a basket built on the ground in dense vegetation. Laying starts in spring, between mid-March and mid-May in Northern hemisphere temperate regions. About 8 eggs are usually laid per female early in the season; a brood later in the year usually has only 5–8 or fewer eggs. Nests may be re-used by different females. Incubation lasts about three weeks. Both parents incubate and feed the young. These fledge after 40–50 days, become independent usually a few weeks thereafter, and may raise their first brood the next spring. When threatened, the young may cling to the parents' body, after which the adult birds fly away to safety, carrying their offspring with them.-Wikipedia
