Let’s Talk About the Crested Caracara

Crested Caracara

By Paul Gerace

The Crested Caracara has broad wings and a long tail that is white in color with a broad terminal band and black barring. With the help of long yellow legs it can easily run and walk on the ground.

This bird normally stays low to the ground even when they are flying, so it is easy to steal food from other birds. The Crested Caracara also follows automobiles and trains to fetch the food that falls from them.

Just another one of the beautiful bird species found here in Costa Rica. See more bird photos HERE
