A Nemesis Bird

During my recent trip to the Texas’ Gulf Coast, I was finally able to capture a few images of one of my nemesis birds … the Crested Caracara (Caracara cheriway). At the time this bird flew over, I was photographing other birds at the Leonabelle Turner Birding Center in Port Aransas. Fortunately, I looked up in time to see this colorful raptor and capture a few images before it flew out of sight. Here are a couple of images I captured:
