rufous bellied hawk eagle

Lophotriorchis kienerii

The rufous-bellied hawk-eagle is a bird of prey in the family Accipitridae that is found in the forested regions of tropical Asia. Relatively small for eagles and contrastingly patterned like a falcon, this species was earlier placed in the genus ''Hieraaetus'' and sometimes also in the genus ''Aquila'' but thought to be distinctive enough to belong to a separate genus.
