During my Texas trip I also visited Tacubaya Ranch in the Rio Grande Valley near Encino, TX. Tacubaya Ranch attracts hunters and photographers. For me, the highlight of this visit was photographing raptors attracted to the carcasses left from the hunting. Many Crested Caracaras came in for a meal. This close-up shot shows a juvenile bird. An adult would have black feathers in place of the brown feathers. Caracaras are scavengers so, like vultures, they have bare skin on their faces. That makes it easier to clean up after a meal. The skin is red on this bird but, as you will see in the next photo, the color can change quickly.
