Whoa! This must have been exciting for you, T. How did you manage to hold your camera still? I'd be shaking. :)
Very nice shot, indeed. Beautiful bird, too. I was not familiar with the Crested Caracara, so I googled it.Interesting bird---Unlike other falcons, it does build a stick nest. Also, it spends more time on the ground hunting than other falcon species. Besides carrion, it consumes small game---it should be able to get some good meals on the runaroundranch. Great post.
have not seen this bird before, sort of a cross between and eagle and osprey
So beautiful he sits. I've not seen this bird before, what great shots you got of him.
Great shot! Love the ones in flight.
Mexican eagle indeed. I bet the other birds all envy his wingspan.
WOW! Tex, those are stunning shots. I like the ones where he is just beginning to take flight because we can see the brilliant colors in his wings...Nice work there my dear!
Oh my goodness! What a wonderful bird! He definitely looks similar to an Eagle!!
So proud looking! Nice shots!
Utterly great shots of your cool dude. Really marvellous to get the flight shots as well.
How cool is that?! Don't think I have ever seen one!
Beautiful shots! He is gorgeous.Teresa
I've never seen one of those - or even heard of it. Love all of your bird photos!
Oh... I bet it was a thrill to see him! So was he overseeing the frogs and turtles in the pond? or ducks? I'm sure he was perched up on that tree looking for his next meal somewhere. ... the circle of life.
Interesting looking bird, too bad the shots aren't clearer - maybe next time. Very cool to see the shots of him taking off in flight!
Wow, you captured some great pics of him!!!
He looks like a very regal and noble bird.Amazing colors!
What a great catch....love the different birds.
What a handsome devil, T!...:)JP
Very cool! That take off shot is awesome!!!
Very nice photos. And I thought my yellow-bellied sapsucker was cool. lol
Awesome captures...never heard of them. But sure a handsome fellow. It is always interesting to see the birds from other areas.
oh, isn't he grand! i love how the light is hitting him as he's about to take off. wonderful captures, t!
Looks like he knew he was getting his picture taken and turning and posing for you. Awesome!
That bird has a great view!
Wow, what a bird! I believe we have these big fellows not in our country.Have a happy weekend xxxxx
What a great sighting! He is beautiful!
How very cool - the things you see! Thanks for sharing! 'love & hugs from afar'
What a magnificent bird! I would get very excited if I saw a creature like that. You are very lucky to have them around.
I love the color and texture you gave these pictures... like something out of the Old West!
That was a great photo op. Falcons are awesome birds. We rarely see them around here; we have lots of hawks though.
So beautiful! I've not seen this bird before. Thanks for sharing whit us.
Fine series! That is one great looking bird and you did a wonderful job of capturing it.
Caracaras are majestic birds. Their range doesn't extend up into the Ozarks, but I have seen them when down in your part of the world. Nice shots!
Wow, so majestic!
Goodness me! I am glad we do not have that bird here. I think he would come in and carry me away, and eat me for lunch! Eeeek!***Lucky Nickel***p.s. My lady says it's a lovely bird. She's crazy.
He is totally awesome!!! Wow!
Nice shots. I like the hawks and eagles.
Magestic, isn't he? Great pictures.xoxo
Very cool, and he does sort of look like an eagle with that flat head. Beautifully feathered.
I've never seen one in person even during my trips to Texas. That's a very cool looking bird and you took some great photos! Nice job, indeed!
