Fixation - White Hawk
20 inches high x 16 inches wide

White hawks, native from southern Mexico to Bolivia and western Brazil, are forest hawks that can also be found hunting over agricultural areas in lowland areas. It spends much of its time perching at the edge of the forest (it has been described as “lethargic” by some researchers) or soaring on updrafts created by hilly terrain.

Although they are not threatened, scientists have noted a decline in areas where the forests have been replaced by agriculture and livestock ranching. Many nations are using the white hawk as an “umbrella species” to protect the forests and the other animals and plant species in those forests.
