Space Coast Birding Festival Crested Caracara

I just took this photo of this Crested Caracara (2nd yr.) this morning at the Ritch Grissom Memorial Wetlands at Viera, one of the birding places as part of the Space Coast Birding Festival, where we are keynote speakers tonight. Crested Caracaras southern raptors mainly found in FL, TX and AZ. They eat small animals, fish, reptiles and carrion, as do vultures.
Awesome bird! Awesome photo ops are available at Viera.

Thanks, Floyd
