Crested Caracara

Crested Caracara
I have photographed the crested caracara on a few occasions in Bonita Springs, Florida even though they are fairly rare in that state.  On this particular day I spotted a pair of them in a tree close to the road. They were busy preening their feathers and didn’t notice me. At least if they did, they weren’t concerned that I was there.
It was fairly windy and the one on the very top of the tree was having a little difficulty keeping its balance and had to keep adjusting by opening its wings.  I took advantage and made several photos before it flew into an adjacent tree.
