Yellow-headed Caracara

Click photo to enlarge

Yellow-headed Caracara standing on an old branch at Río Guayabero in Meta, Colombia.

The adult is pale buffy with dark brown wings; the juvenile is also buffy but dark streaking. Note buffy wing patches in flight. Most similar to Laughing Falcon but only has a thin dark line behind the eye, not a full black mask. Much smaller than Crested Caracara, without a dark cap. Found in open habitats, such as fields and river edges, where it often perches conspicuously. Can be found singly, in pairs, or in small family groups. Makes a harsh screeching noise.
