Northern Crested Caracara in Florida Feb 2014.

On our trip to Florida one of my main birds I really wanted to see was a Northern Crested Caracara.  Donna, Janet and I were thrilled to see one at Viera Wetlands.  Our guide Kathryn Dow had great eyes and spotted it from a back road.  Following his flight we were so fortunate to see him land on the mount by the heron rookery.  A few shots of this amazing bird.

And away he goes.  Wonderful bird of prey.
