|White Hawk Pseudastur albicollis
(aka Leucopternis albicollis)
Other subspecies tend to have more white on the back and are to be found in central America and western Colombia.
|It is a forest bird but is relatively easy to see since it tends to perch at forest edges. It hunts mainly snakes which it spots from its perch or when soaring.|
|The buffy tones on the bird in photos 3 to 5 suggest that it is a sub-adult.|
