Bicolored Hawk (Accipiter bicolor)

My only encounter of the species, and in luck as it was relatively close. Hawks are ambush predators that swoops in on their prey, and we usually locate them by following the agitated calls from its prey, smaller birds, or during their hunt. I located this one by following the agitated calls and flights of the birds.
