I think it's a Crested Caracara.
Observed during Pronatura trip to Las Barrancas (S of Veracruz City)
Dinner Island Ranch Wildlife Management Area, southern Hendry County, Southwest of Clewiston, Florida and Lake Okeechobee: This is a great area to see Florida wildlife.
The "ranch" has a dirt road that is roughly 16 miles round, with many smaller side "roads".
We saw many creatures including a Crested Caracara.
There is no cost.
Came upon this pair as they were mating. They stuck around long enough after my rude interruption to pose for a few pics. Would like to find where they are nesting to observe raising of next generation.
En laguna La Colorada.
The pictures are terrible, but I believe there is enough here for a positive ID. This is the first caracara I have seen in the DFW area.

There were at least 7 Crested Caracara way out in an agricultural field with a mixed flock of vultures. They obviously had some sort of carcass out there. These shots were taken from perhaps 300-400 meters away and the heat shimmer coming off the grassland in the sun caused havoc with my focus, but I think you'll be able to see the caracaras.
