I checked with the owner of the Macaw Rescue and Sanctuary in Carnation who had 30 birds stolen from their property some months back. He said they have never had a Caracara, only parrots, and suggested checking with the zoos in the area.

I'm a bit surprised people aren't talking about this more. Isn't it exceptionally unlikely that this bird is here naturally? It's not as if this is a vagrant migrating songbird. Wouldn't we have seen reports of the bird between where it is now and where its natural range is? It seems most likely to me that this is an escaped captive bird. Has anybody investigated this possibility?
