Crested Cara Cara Babies and Adult with Snake and Mockingbird Neighbor

Photos by Greg Clark, May 1998, South Central Arizona


Eventually the eggs hatched and two babies can be seen in this photograph. The images appear fuzzy because I took them from so far away. I was afraid to move too close for fear of upsetting the adults or the babies.








This adult is bringing a snake to the nest for the babies. The Mockingbirds were a constant presence around the adults. When the adults showed up the Mockingbirds were right with them. What's a mother to do? home
