This Bicoloured Hawk is a full grown raptor now.
Last year, 2015, this young bird of prey was seen terrorizing the tanagers and flycatchers near the lodge. It took a while before I could take some pictures of this fast and furious raptor but I managed to take several shots. Here is an update on the Bicoloured Hawk.
Here you can see a young Bicoloured Hawk perched in the mope tree. It likes to hunt early in the morning or late in the afternoon. This picture was taken in December 2015.
Same bird but only a couple of months later. You can clearly see that it starts to mature bit by bit. Rufous thighs become more and more visible and its chest turns a bit grey. This picture was taken in April 2016.
And here is a picture of how the Bicoloured Hawk looks right now. All grown up and with a confidence look in its eyes too. This raptor now prefers to hunt early in the mornings and after grabbing its breakfast it goes back into the dense vegetation.
