Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Strikingly patterned raptor of the high Andes in Ecuador and southern Colombia. Note pied plumage pattern, white streaks on black breast, and orange face. Immatures are brown with pale patches in the wings (visible in flight). Similar to Mountain Caracara, which may overlap with it in southern Ecuador, but adult Carunculated has breast streaking, and immatures have barring on rump. Inhabits open areas such as paramo and farmland, sometimes congregating in large numbers.
