Unfortunately! The Crested Caracara decided to eat his meal about a 1/2 mile out!

The 600mm plus 1.4 extender ( or multiplier ) did the best it could to deliver a "confirmed sighting" but a "bird portrait" was just not in the cards!!

I went out on Friday but didn't find my distant buddy ~ much less a closer shot.

We'll try again Sunday
