Yellow headed caracara (Milvago chimachima)

The yellow-headed caracara (Milvago chimachima) is found in tropical and subtropical South America and the southern portion of Central America. Unlike the falcons in the same family, the caracara is not a fast-flying aerial hunter, but is rather sluggish and often obtains food by scavenging. The attached image was taken in Panama.
