An Evolutionary Prediction

I predict that we will eventually see the evolution of a species of bird that lives only in american suburban mall parking lots and feeds solely on the Cheerios, Animal Crackers, and cheese bits that fall out of the sliding doors of minivans.

I am reading about Darwin and finches right now (in the birth order book I picked up - Born to Rebel - a good read).

Anyhow - the key thing would be beak shape - something narrow enough to hook the cheerios for hauling to the nest, and sharp enough to break up the pesky stale crackers.

I'm thinking the cheese will be too gummy for such a beak. Maybe they'll leave it and foster a new race of fat, orange-yellow ants?
