Yellow-headed Caracara

It was 5.00 in the afternoon my brother and I stopped to talk to each other on the highway. We were drawn away from conversation when the Yellow-headed Caracara came down in the cane field. The cane was already cut so we could see what was happening.

There was a pile of dirt that made a hump, one of the birds went to the top of the pile while the others stayed lower, it went on like that for about 5 minutes. Then they all flew away.

My brother turned to me and said OMG they just had a board meeting. The amount of birds in the meeting was about ten.
