[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The right name - it was sitting just beside the road when I was driving by. I stopped and it had the amiability to wait until I had made two pics!

The roadside hawk (Rupornis magnirostris) is a relatively small bird of prey found in the Americas. This vocal species is often the most common raptor in its range.
The roadside hawk's diet consists mainly of insects, squamates, and small mammals, such as young common marmosets and similar small monkeys which are hunted quite often

Hello Pierre,
Very nice photo of this Roadside Hawk. Good sharpness and fine natural colours. Maybe you can cut a piece of the bottom of the photo, so that the iron disappears.
