Crested Caracara landing with primary feathers and tail feathers spread (sandra calderbank)

This Crested Caracara came screeching to a halt as he (or she) came in for a landing. It was early morning in South Texas. These large long-legged birds are unusual to me because in the USA, they live only in South Texas and a very small area in Florida. I’m told they are a tropical version of a vulture but they are certainly more attractive than a vulture to my eye.
