Plumbeous Forest-Falcon

The Plumbeous Forest-Falcon is classified as Vulnerable (VU), considered to be facing a high risk of extinction in the wild.

The Plumbeous Forest-falcon (Micrastur plumbeus) is a species of bird of prey in the Falconidae family. It is endemic to humid forests in the Chocó in south-western Colombia and north-western Ecuador. It is generally poorly known and rare. It is threatened by habitat loss, and consequently considered vulneranble by BirdLife International and IUCN. It closely resembles the Lined Forest-falcon from the Amazon, but adults only have a single white tail-band (in addition to a narrow white tail-tip) and the irides are pale brownish-grey. More
