Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Quiz: These crested caracaras are related to which bird family?

A Pigeon
B Falcon
C Toucan

Though some ornithologists argue the crested caracara merits its own familial classification, for now the bird remains in the falcon family. The pair in our photo are performing a mating ritual in the grasslands of Texas, at the northern limits of the crested caracaras’ range.
