This past Wednesday, November 6th, 2013 at our Costa Rica Sun Tours office, we have spotted a couple of yellow headed Caracaras. The yellow headed Caracaras (Milvago chimachima) are related to the Falcons. These yellow headed Caracaras have been seen more and more in the Central Valley of Costa Rica, as they are resident species, while expanding to other areas in recent years. The yellow headed Caracaras usually inhabit cattle pastures and open areas. They are sometimes seen picking ticks off animals backs, even from Iguanas! We are proud to add this new sighting to our bird list.
