Adult and Juvenile Crested Caracara
These two Crested Caracara touched down on the same branch on an extremely cloudy day in South Texas. This Adult and Juvenile Crested Caracara look like they are enjoying a discussion about something surely significant, like where is the closest food? The Crested Caracara is a huge bird of prey and they frequently follow vultures to feed on carrion but they also catch live small animals and birds. Crested Caracara are not common in the United States, found only in South Texas and a small area of Florida, so it made me smile to discover these two perched on the same limb.
