Crested Caracara. Caracara cheriway
Mexican Eagle.

Some people bring to the Bird`s Museum so many types of injured birds for their proper rehabilitation, some of them take time to do so, and when they are ready to fly again are released at specific locations and it is very pleased to see them fly free again.

Some other birds can not fly again and are kept here for the rest of his life like this Caracara.

Note. Photo taken inside of the garden of Mexican Birds Museum.

Hello Luis,
Nice portrait of this Crested caracara. Strange is the yellow cere. I know them only with reddish colours. Excellent sharpness and details. Good composition and blurred BG.

Super nice Luis...very tack on sharp. Its colours are pretty nifty and show as if we knew it is correct white balance. Wonderful Mr Mexican Nature.

Hello Luis,
fantastic shot!
great sharpness and detail, excellent POV and beautiful natural colors.
Thanks for sharing

Hello Luis,
A lovely portrait of this beautiful bird. Very well composed with sharp details, nice colours, excellent OOF BG and pose. Well done!

Hola Luis,
Es una hermosa ave, aquí es frecuente verlos en los potreros y ganaderías, has hecho un excelente retrato aquí en esta foto. Es una lastima que algunas aves como estas no puedan retornar a sus predios naturales.



What a fabulous portrait of this beautiful bird!!! I have nothing to add. Just want to sit back and enjoy. Well done. Pity the bird is in captivity.

Buena luz y preciosos colores Luis.
La pose y encuadre originales y efectivos.

Ok going to go to a museum around these here parts...maybe THEN i can get photos like these. You gave me a GREAT idea!

If you never "said goodbye", never would have discovered your shots! Life can get so busy and see i have missed your postings..now going back and hunting them all up! hehe
