Crested Caracara

Wow. I mean, really, wow.  This past couple of weeks have been especially good for the hard-to-find birds.  In the U.S. the Crested Caracara is found only in parts of central Florida and parts of Texas. I saw 3 in one day.

This pair were sitting on top of a telephone pole grooming each other.  They supposedly are quite aggressive and will take food away from other predators.  They look like they could do that.
