We saw this juvenile caracara at the Viamonte Access at about 8:30. It was being attacked by two guira cuckoos and showed no reaction at all. It flew some meters away and perched on a tree at two meters high. We took some photos. And so we did when we found it at 12:30 hs on another tree and at 5:30 in the nearby sanitaries walking most calmly. At first we thought it was ill but it seems this is the behaviour of juveniles. Its parents were very near and there were remnants of a pigeon scattered on the ground. Personnel from the Rehab Center were keeping an eye on it to see whether it was feeding well

Excitement among caracaras. Nine of them were flying over the area. They chased each other, landed on the ground and flew off, showed signals to mate. A group of adults and juveniles
