Biking by National Harbor a few days after lots of rain and the resultant debris accumulating on the river shore (that's the Potomac, for those not familiar with the area), we saw an incredibly tame vulture who had no problem pecking through the trash with us really close to him.  I never appreciated how really ugly these guys are.
