Collared forest falcon???

Recommended Posts

I saw this bird this morning . It was perched on a cell-phone tower very close to the beach in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. It is a hawk of some kind. It was a long way away so the photo is not as good as I would like. Any ideas on what it could be?

agreed. I don't know the birds of Mexico but that sure looks good for a peregrine and that's a better picture of one than I've ever gotten.

Collared Forest-Falcon is a bird of... forests. To fly around in tight forests, birds want short, rounded wings. This bird's wings extend to and beyond the tail tip -- which is very long.
