Well this is an interesting spotting i agree whit evenlake and Liam a Caracara but this spot is in Germany do you see this bird in a reserve.

I agree with Caracara. Almost definitely an escapee.

Atul 8 years ago

definitely a crested Caracara, and as evenlake mentioned its native to North and South America.

I'd say it is an immature.

If the reserve keeps non-native species, I'd have to say it's a caracara.

AnuraagRajasekhar 8 years ago

there was a reserve near by :D

I agree it looks like a Caracara - but those are not native to Germany I don't think... Was this seen in the wild?

Looks an awful lot like a Crested Caracara, but as they are only native to North and South America, it'd have to be an escapee from somewhere nearby. Is there a zoo around the filling station?

no i don't :(
