Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Rare raptor found in wet rainforest in northwestern Ecuador and western Colombia. Adult is gray with barred underparts and orange face and legs. It is extremely similar to the much more common Barred Forest-Falcon; tail is shorter and only shows one band, though this is often hard to see; facial skin and legs are deep orange and usually darker than the yellow to orange hue of Barred. Immature is mostly white below with only faint barring on the breast. Vocalizations are similar and in some cases almost identical to those of Barred Forest-Falcon.
