Slate-coloured Hawk

Buteogallus schistaceus


This is a medium-sized hawk, per the photo it is overall slate-gray in color. Numerous individuals were spotted in the Upper Amazon, Pacaya Samiria Reserve.


Amazon rainforest. Up-river from this spotting, close to Iquitos, a petroleum/chemical plant was being constructed. The Amazon is rich in minerals and natural will only be a matter of time before the area becomes industrialized. It is pristine now, maybe less so in the future.
