White-tailed Hawk

Scientific Name: Buteo albicaudatus
Population Estimate: 2M
Location of Sighting: San Blas, Mexico
Date of Sighting: January, 2010
Notes: Richard took this beautiful photo. We were fortunate to be up on a cliff and the hawk was gliding just above us en route to the valley below. Dark band across a white tail is distinctive, though in this individual it is not as pronounced as others.
