I enjoyed observing the caracara with others Monday at Skykomish.
Was not sure what to make of the yellow fleshy area on the bird's chest. Centrally located. Some wondered if it was an abnormal growth.
On examination of photos of this species on line, it can be seen at the same location on several different birds. So appears to be a normal appearance feature.
Very neat bird.
