Finally got to almost within decent range of one of these and had a chance for a couple of shots.

This will probably be the last of my bird pic attempts for awhile until I find time to learn PS and make a decision aboutadditional lens if any.

Thanks for the comments guys.

The Crested Cara Cara is a bird from Mexico that has some smallpopulations in Florida, Texas and Arizona.From what I understand it is declining in Florida.....I guess those took up residence in my neck of the woods. I first saw them 3-4 years ago.

The last one is a Black Vulture, pretty common around here.

Nice!! The Crested Caracara is one of my favorite birds (along with the Roseatte Spoonbill) and I was lucky enough to photograph one during my brief stay in Florida. From what I understand, there may be only about 300 of them left in that state!!Any idea how they farein TX?

Thanks guysfor the comments on the Caracara. Hard as I have tried that is the best opportunity I have had.

The population of these birds in Texas must be expanding. I never saw one until 3-4 years ago and then began to see them often. Ihadthree sightings of them yesterday morning several miles apart.
