Orange-breasted Falcon in Cerro Azul



On the afternoon of April 8, 2008, Advantage Tours' Euclides Campos and Ariel Tenorio found an Orange-breasted Falcon at Birders' View in Cerro Azul while leading a group of british birders. The bird perched on a dead tree for 8–10 minutes, allowing for these photos (taken with a cellphone.) Orange-breasted Falcon is one of our rarest raptors (someone, quick, alert the Peregrine Fund) but this is not the first record from the area, as there is a 1970 report from near Cerro Jefe.
