Black-collared Hawk, Busardo Colorado, Busarellus nigricollis
This impressive wetland loving hawk can be quite secretive. I was therefore delighted to see this bird out in the open. This was photographed near the Rio Beni, Riberalta in NE Bolivia. It has a huge range from Colombia south to northern Argentina. This bird was photographed close to the Rio Beni, Riberalata in NE Bolivia at the end of August 2012.
