went for a drive out to the everglades up to Lake Okeechobee and back scouting. found a road with several pairs of these guys along with a red-tailed, lots of kestrels, some red shouldered hawks and many king fishers. will go back when I have more time. All the caracaras were high up on the power poles

Excellent shots, Bob! They are high on my list for this winter when I go down to Cape Coral.

they are one of my favorites and pretty common here. I have not looked around Cape Coral but I'm sure if you drive inland on rural roads you will see them on fence posts and power poles. Let me know how you do and if you need more info

Thanks, I heard they can be found in near Arcadia and Myakka River State Park, and along SR70, so will definitely be looking there. Plus there is a ecological preserve somewhere near Naples that says they have an area where they can be found too.

With luck, they'll just fly up and visit you again!

Great shots, one of many I want to see.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

thanks for the comments- I much prefer them on a tree but beggars can't be choosers.
