I was looking at the Duck Pond, which is really very "busy" and saw how the caracaras worked as a team chasing nenday parakeets on the wing, though the effort was unsuccessful.
But it was much more interesting to observe a caracara on the ground walking very cautiously to get to a place. It was a pool of water inside the pond. In it a coypu moved easily in search for food. The caracara got nearer till the coypu realised how near the bird was, slid out of the water and began to drive the caracara away. I had never seen a coypu run and just as a comment it resembles a rabbit in the way it does, almost hopping. The caracara quickly flaps and flies away. They never came into contact but we can say the coypu threw out the caracara, which flew off.
I photographed the scene when the coypu leaves the water and attacks the caracara. But not the end of the story. Actions precipitated ...
