chimango caracara (plural chimango caracaras)

  1. A species of caracara, Milvago chimango, endemic to South America.
    • 2000, Michael Bright, Wild South America, BBC Worldwide 2000, p. 52:
      Chimango caracaras, birds the size of a crow but with the armoury of an eagle, follow the buzzard eagles everywhere, the commotion caused by the larger birds providing these scavengers with ample food in the form of exposed eggs – after all, caracaras have chicks to raise, too.
