The black caracara (Daptrius ater) is a species of bird of prey in the Falconidae family. Its genus Daptrius is often considered monotypic today, though some also include the red-throated caracara otherwise separated in Ibycter.
It is found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and heavily degraded former forests.
It is all black except its legs and face which are red.
