Farmers hate them because they regularly arrive at calving/lambing time and *will* wait patiently behind the animals giving birth and feed on the offspring as its coming out.

I've seen them eat the afterbirth, never seen them kill anything. Their beaks are big, but not as powerful as a raptors beak. They prefer decayed or very soft meat, and will wait for decay to progress.
