Galapagos Hawk Although not a great photo I wanted to introduce the species. All throughout the Galapagos the animals would not run from you including the hawks. We found this guy perched on a tree six or so feet above the ground and he didn't budge when I got close to him for a photo.

  2. I'm very glad you decided to share it, as it's a spectacular spotting. One of few in Galapagos, and a new species intro. Promoted! Posted 5 years ago
