This White Hawk (Leucopternis albicollis) was photographed in Corcovado. A bird of lowland forest and other woodlands, the adult White Hawk ranges from 46-56 cm long with very broad wings and has a white head, body and underwings. The upper wings are black, and the very short tail is black with a broad white band. The bill is black and the legs are yellow. The sexes are similar, but females are larger and heavier (840g compared to the male's 650g). They will build a stick nest in a tree and the female usually lays one dark-blotched, blue-white egg.
