Spyderco Tenacious VS Endura
Not a knife story, but a Crested Caracara tale. Sunday morning, a dozen Black Vultures were lined up at the edge of the pond where I had killed a Nutria the day before. Only one was working on the dam-destroying aquatic rodent so I looked through the spotting scope I have set up and it was not a Black Vulture.
It was a Caracara also known as a Mexican eagle. One vulture stepped too close and the Caracara raised its wings and talons in full attack mode. The vulture backpedalled and the eagle resumed ripping and tearing at the carrion. Even though the Caracara was a little smaller than the vultures and was outnumber eleven to one, the vultures stood without moving a feather watching their brunch disappear.
The Caracara is a serious falcon, a raptor, a bird of prey,
but not above fighting for a ready to serve meal.
