Northern Crested Caracara

Caracara cheriway


I believe this is a Northern Caracara.


Sonoran Desert. Have see very large quantities the past few weeks as farmers are tilling the fields and they are having a hayday with the fieldmice!


I think this is a Northern Caracara. The black ones are Southern. These seem a lot more scraggley than the black ones.
