Striated Caracara (Phalcoboenus australis)

The Falklands, December 17-18, 2014

We've seen a number of other types of Caracaras, but we've only seen the Striated Caracara while visiting the Falklands during our Southern Ocean Expedition. They were present on both New Island and Steeple Jason. They are pretty aggressive birds, and John was almost attacked.
