Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Ridiculously adorable panda-faced raptor, usually found in extended family groups ranging in size from 4 to 20. Perches on exposed snags, sallying forth to catch prey; capable of taking passerines only slightly smaller than it is. Black above and white below, with a white face and a thick black stripe extending down behind the eye. Flight is fluttery but fast; black barring on the wings and tail is only visible in flight, as is a thick black streak on the armpit, reminiscent of Black-bellied Plover.
