Common Black-Hawk

Buteogallus anthracinus

The Common Black Hawk breeds in the warmer parts of the Americas, from the Southwestern USA through Central America to Venezuela, Peru, and the Caribbean. These hawks are often found near water and feed extensively on crustations they find there, but small vertebrate prey and eggs are also on their menu.
