A southern caracara gets hold of a yellow-billed corpse which was lying at the Coypu Pond. It takes the body to a safer place, where it is followed by another southern caracara, which pretends to be invited to the feast.

In the first attack four caracaras pounced on the coot, which defends itself by diving. Since the caracaras can not capture the prey they fly away and only two caracaras make other atempts. But the coot manages to evade them and leave with the triumphal flap

The caracara was walking very unconcernedly. All of a sudden he stopped and leapt ot one side to catch a prey, or it was there beforehand. I do not know. It seemed to be a pigeon. Feathers kept flying ceaselessly

The voice of the mockingbird led me to a caracara which was tearing off leaves and branches. The yells attracted another five mockingbirds. From a dried tree they swooped down on the caracara. Like the Chimango caracara, the Southern Caracara ignored the attacks even the overt ones. The caracara kept pulling branches for a while and then left.
