Caracara Portrait by Linda S. Wright

"The Watcher"
14" x 11"
Colored Pencil

This was drawn using a wonderful photograph by Glenn Dickey, who graciously gave me permission to use it as reference. It earned an honorable mention in our local Fiesta de la Paloma art show, this past October. 
Caracaras are members of the falcon family of birds, eating carrion as a vulture does and also taking prey like a hawk. They are also referred to as the "Mexican Eagle" and are the national bird of Mexico.
