Why did the Crested Caracara cross the road? I really don't know, but I'm pretty glad it did. I drove to Brumley Rd this morning, and on the way into the area, I saw two on the top of a distant tree. Then, on my way out, I only saw one. I started to drive off and then I saw the second in the grass on the other side of the road near someone's yard. It was pretty close to the road, and I thought maybe if I drive slow enough, I might be able to get close enough from some good photos. As I was slowly approaching, the first flew over and landed on a fence post very near me. I stopped my car and took the above picture. Then it dropped down and walked over the road to the grass with the other caracara. The two of them walked together, usually not close enough together for me to get both in the same frame, but it looked like they were trying to find their lost car keys.
