Hi all. One week the RWBB's were bothering the caracara's, flying all around them. What pests they were! Then the next week I caught this couple preening and lovin! I hope that means babies!!:biggrin: Both taken with the D300 and Nikon 500 f4

I see your RWBB's are just like ours -- FEARLESS! Here they don't like eagles, and treat them with as much disdain as yours treat Caracaras! Your Caracara images make me wish to be back at Viera.

Hey, I know that limb! Nice ones Nancy. Glenda and I both recognized the spot and it took us right back to a great week in February.

Nancy these are terrific pictures. I really hope to see one of these birds some day.

Thank you so much all!!!:biggrin: I really did not know how well these came out till I got home and then I was thrilled. I suppose THAT tree and these birds might be called the icons of Viera for sure. I hope the memories they bring back are happy ones to all!:smile:

I'll put my money on the RWBB. *-) Always like seeing pics of the caracaras. Nicely done Nancy. Wish I had these birds around here. Guess I'll have to put up with the ospreys instead. Can't wait to get back to the East coast to shoot some of these guys.
