Red-throated Caracara

Ibycter americanus (Boddaert, 1783)

The Red-throated Caracara (Ibycter americanus) is a social species of bird of prey in the Falconidae family. It is placed in the monotypic genus Ibycter, or sometimes united in Daptrius with the Black Caracara. Uniquely among caracaras, it mainly feeds on the larvae of bees and wasps, but will also take the adult insects, fruits and berries. Source: Wikipedia
