The English name comes from its loud voice, as does the specific name cachinnans, which is Latin for “laughing aloud” or...

The caracara is 16 to 18 inches long and weighs 11.5 ounces on average. Just like many other birds of prey, the females are larger than the males, weighing 11 to 13...

It mostly lives there as well, yet some Gyrfalcons disperse more widely after breeding season or in the winter. This bird is isolated throughout the Northern Hemisphere, with populations in Northern American, Greenland, and Northern Europe. The plumage varies with location, with birds being colored from all white, to dark...
