Crested caracaras mating

Crested caracaras (Caracara cheriway) are still considered a rare species in Trinidad, but as illustrated here with a pair photographed along the Manzanilla Mayaro highway, they are busy at breeding, like most other birds during the mating season. Their numbers (and observations) are multiplying, and I have no doubt in the next 5 -10 years they will be considered uncommon rather than rare here.
