44 - Caracara

Caracara__10 x 8 oil on linen panel__$550
#44 in the Birdseed Project
Caracaras started showing up on our farm just a couple of years before we left. I never remembered seeing them as a kid, and I heard that they were rather "new" to central Texas. We also call them Mexican Eagles, because they come up from Mexico... BIG BIRDS that sit on fence posts and stand around in fields. They are very handsome and not too shy, so I have gotten some pretty decent photos.

Cool bird! A raptor with long legs- don't see enough of those!
