Roadside Hawk (Rupornis magnirostris)

The Roadside Hawk is a very common sight in Costa Rica; just as its name suggest, it is common to be driving along a road and see one of this. They perch on tree branches, but also on utility posts, from where they deliver their high pitched call. It is very similar in body shape and size to the Grey Hawk, however the body is more brownish.
