Crested Caracara

By semerson  
Portrait of the Crested Caracara.

The Crested Caracara, otherwise known as the Southern Caracara, Common Caracara and sometimes Mexican Eagle, can be found in central and southern Florida, southern Texas, southern Arizona south to Tierra del Fuego, Cuba, Isle of Pines and the Falkland Islands.

It prefers open or semi-open country, either arid or well watered. Although it is usually seen at low elevations, in the Andes it has been seen at up to 8,000 or 9,000 feet.
