Image # 5 of my 2021 favorites shows an adult Crested Caracara delivering a bit of breakfast to its offspring.
I caught the adult at the moment it landed, wings still outstretched, with the youngsters obviously interested in eating.
Those who are regular subscribers to this blog know that I spent a number of very early mornings in early summer observing this Caracara nest and its occupants. This is one of hundreds of images that I made of the family and it may be the most dynamic.
Image made with a Canon R5, Canon RF 100-500mm f4.5-7.1 IS L zoom lens, M setting (auto ISO), ISO 1250, f10 @ 1/2000.
