Flame-tailed Pondhawk

I took this photograph of a Flame-tailed Pondhawk in the grassy marshland behind the Hotel de Campo near Caño Negro, Costa Rica, on 12 July 2017. This habitat is typical for the species, which perches in and patrols low over heavy marsh grasses. The species is found from Mexico south to Argentina. It is also known from Jamaica and there is one record from southwestern Texas.
