Orange-breasted Falcon - Falco deiroleucus Falconidae 120y-2084321

On a recent trip to Guatemala, we were treated to a distant but clear view of a rare Orange-breasted Falcon. This endangered raptor nests on cliffs surrounded by large areas of forest and the ruins of the Mayan city of Tikal situated within the large, well-forested Tikal National Park are ideal. This falcon is surveying its domain from a 'cliff' near the top of Temple III in the ancient city.
