Sooty hawk

The Short-tailed Hawk is an American bird of prey in the family Accipitridae, which also includes the eagles and Old World vultures. As a member of the genus Buteo, it is not a true hawk and thus also referred to as a buteo or buzzard. The White-throated Hawk is a close relative and was formerly included in the species B. brachyurus.

The Sooty hawk is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

sooty hawk camped in a nearby tree. He next admired the calm beauty intact in his front room, but knew there had been an intruder while he was away. When someone asked him later how it had all turned out, and if revenge was sought, he reportedly shrugged: “I assure you my guest got what he wanted at the time.” Each version of the tale apparently ends with a different treasure in the box.
