Caracara

By phil_j  
Managed to get a day off today and took a trip to one of my favourite places, The Hawk Conservancy Centre at Andover.

This bird never seems to draw much attention from the public taking photo's, which is a shame, I think she is a picture myself.

This is a Falklands Isle Caracara.

Thanks for looking.

Phil
