Ranch Saturday: Attractive Carrion Eater

A Crested Caracara walks along the roadside at Treasure Hammock Ranch, to investigate some roadkill near a pile of scat. The bird scooped up the roadkill and flew off with it. Like Vultures and Bald Eagles, the Crested Caracara is also a carrion eater.

From the Florida Cattle Ranch project.
