|Slaty-backed forest falcon|
The slaty-backed forest falcon (Micrastur mirandollei) is a species of bird of prey in the family Falconidae. It is found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Panama, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests. These falcons catch their own prey. They eat birds, snakes, lizards, rodents, fish, and sometimes bats. They live from south Panama to the Amazon rainforest, and in Eastern Brazil. Their call is different than other forest falcons, with 7-10 notes repeated in a series.
