White Hawk

Pseudastur albicollis (Latham, 1790)

The White Hawk (Pseudastur albicollis), a bird of prey breeding in the tropical New World, belongs to the family Accipitridae of the Falconiformes; it is sometimes separated in the Accipitriformes with the other hawks and their relatives. Though it is commonly placed in the subfamily Buteoninae, the validity of this group is doubtful and currently under review. Source: Wikipedia
