A dozen Crested Caracara remains roosting in a single tree. Earlier there were fifteen of them
At day break, on Saturday, I traveled Church Road, in HendryCounty in search of whistling ducks, turkeys and early flycatchers. Dipped on the targets, but did find FOS Eastern Phoebe, Eastern Towhees, Tree Swallows and lots of Crested Caracaras. Spotted a bare tree decorated with fifteen caracaras at roost, waiting for the air to warm up. Seems that there is a nice concentration of these birds roosting in the orange groves along Church.
