Southern Crested Caracara

Polyborus plancus brasiliensis


This "Southern Crested Caracara" was feeding of another bird. Probaly a "Picazuro Pigeon" ("Patagioenas picazuro") or a "Rock Pigeon" (Columba livia").


I found this specimen on a tree in a pasture, on a region of transition between the Cerrado and Atlantic Forest.
