2019—Menacing, But Drab

This juvenile Crested Caracara extends its talons to grasp onto a dead branch as it comes in for a landing in South Texas a couple of weeks ago. Juveniles lack the bright orange coloring on their faces and legs that adults have, so this bird looks rather drab by comparison. Menacing, but drab.
