This bird came flying down the wetland flushing everything. the black necked stilts began chasing because they nest near by. When the Cara Cara came back down the wetland it was chasing a willet, the chase went back and forth, and finally the Cara Cara knocked the willet into the water and killed it. However the water was to deep for the Cara Cara to pick up the bird. The Cara Cara are nesting in the preserve also
