Savanna Hawk

Nancy took this image while on a trip led by Brian Rapoza for the Tropical Audubon Society to Trinidad and Tobago.

This is a large raptor (18 to 24" long, 30 ounces) with strikingly long legs. It is found in open savanna and swamp edges, breeding from Panama and Trinidad south to Bolivia, Uruguay, and central Argentina.

Savanna Hawks feed on small mammals, lizards, snakes, crabs, and large insects. They build nests of sticks lined with grass in palm trees, and lay a single egg.

Photographic details: Canon EOS 7D camera w/ EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM lens and EF 1.4x II extender set at 520mm. Off-camera flash was used. Camera was on f/11 for 1/125 second at ISO 200.
