Southern Crested Caracara

Polyborus plancus brasiliensis


During a rain, this Caracara was just resting on a tree in a square. It really didn't worry 'cos I was near, photographing.


I found this specimen in a coastal region, north of Brazil. Region of mountain ranges, predominantly Atlantic Forest.
