This is a great birding spot in Texas.
Sewage lagoons are also good birding spots.
Birders go to the nicest places.
A tropical falcon version of a vulture, the Crested Caracara reaches the United States only in Arizona, Texas, and Florida. It is a bird of open country, where it often is seen at carrion with vultures.
Although it looks like a long-legged hawk and associates with vultures, the Crested Caracara is actually in the same family as falcons.
