    Hi Andreas
    Yes this is Viera. Remember the Caracara at nest pics we were after.
    This is the Female. No bands or radio.
    Two fledglings now. They stay out in the back field most of the time.
    One young one likes to stay down in the back corner rumaging around on the ground.
    Thank You

    Sandi , this was a very good lunch catch:>))
    I had a heck of a time seeing what she had. They were in deep grass.
    Finally she picked it up and I was able to get two shots of the critter. Then she flew. I was actually to close to get the flight.
    Thank You
