Broad-winged Hawk

Buteo platypterus

It is alone perched on a semi-open branch. I'm standing in a small village at the border of a forest in The Andes. People and traffic is passing but it seems not to disturb the hawk. It hunts by changing perches. Waits again or when it is lucky ambushes prey. It observes me but stays calm although I can see it's more alert.
