Yellow-headed Caracara in Barranquilla

I'm on the road again as part of my job, and today happened to be in the airport in Barranquilla, Colombia, waiting for a flight back to Bogota. Of course, I stayed near the windows just in case something interesting might appear, and sure enough -- it happened. A Yellow-headed Caracara landed on a pole just outside, and stayed long enough for me to snap a few photos, then flew away and was joined by another before they disappeared. The photos aren't great, but anyway made it possible to compare with illustrations in the field guide later for identification. Wonder what will appear tomorrow.
