Crested Caracara? (South Houston, TX)


I took a stroll in the neighborhood where my relatives live today and saw three birds. I barely had enough time to get out my camera and snap a couple of pictures which are very blurry. But I think there is enough detail to tell that these are Crested Caracaras (which would be a new bird for me), what do you think?

Thanks in advance,

Yes! Crested Cara Cara!
Saw my first this past week, but have been watching for them for years!
