Unlike the striated caracara these are very shy birds. I saw one in the distance on Saunders Island, but it would not let me get close enough to take a picture. This was a chance encounter on my last day as I wandered round Gypsey Cove, near Stanley. Fortunately he froze just long enough to allow this one shot before taking to the air
