Striated Caracara (Johnny Rook)
Problem-solving falcon of the Falklands - the most intelligent Antarctic bird?
Our Expert Says… "These birds are very curious, and will often come to see what we are doing when we land. Be very careful about putting anything down if there are Caracaras around - they are excellent thieves and will take anything that looks interesting to them if they spot it!"
The striated caracara is a bird of prey and a member of the falcon family. It is known locally on the Falkland Islands as the Johnny Rook.
