    Different physiologies. Just find information on the internal digestive system of a condor. Short straight smooth colon. Powerful digestive juices. Though condors don’t need them as much since they eat the meat rotting.

    The implied comparison is to people, which are mammals (not avian dinosaurs), and omnivores (not obligate carnivore/scavengers).

    They do move muscles. If you’ve watched a vulture or raptor soar, they constantly make little adjustments.
    .
    A typical bird eats and it’s through the system in about ten minutes. I like to joke “from beak to sidewalk in ten minutes”.

    Yes on both issues.

    The meat they eat is better than the fast food meat some of us eat.

    Part 1: Of course, and Caulfield probably knows it.

    Part 2: That’s funny! (When it’s actually “from beak to sidewalk” and not “from beak to shoulder” or “from beak to jacket-I-was-going-to-wear-to-work”) I had noticed the 10-minute intervals, but if what comes out went in 10 minutes ago, how come there’s more output 10 minutes later, without more input in between? :-D

    For all we know, maybe their arteries are trashed, and that’s why they’re near extinction. (I know, there are other reasons.)

    I doubt that most of that fast food is actually food.

    No, just some poor schmuck’s car in California, if that was mine, I would sell it on the spot.

    To whom?! (LOL) I was thinking that there had better be a good long garden hose in the area somewhere…

    When staying airborne is your primary means of staying alive, weight is the enemy- even the weight of the very food you need to survive! That’s why every aspect of the avian digestive system is geared towards getting the maximum nutrition out of food as quickly as possible- and then getting the rest out of the body ASAP.

    The avian digestive system is far better than ours and both solid and liquid come out as one. No separation like we have.
