Photographer's Note

This is a challenge to the ornithologists here. I am really hoping someone can help me identify this bird. To look at this bird I think bird of prey, yes? Talons, aggressive beak, and agile shape. However, this bird and several hundred of his friend were hanging about a dump picking up scraps. My guess is that the birds are migrating since the winter is ending now and they will eat anything. I've only seen birds of prey alone or possibly with a mate but never with such a large group. They act more like seagulls. Anyone with knowledge of birds from this region of the world?

This was also a great time to try out my new 70-200 2.8F L lens. This image is the result of cropping that probably takes the image to 150% of its original given that I was about 70 meters away. I am pretty happy with the results.
