Simón and Ignacio saw this White-tailed Hawk which confronted first a couple of caracaras and then two Harris's Hawks.
Two raptor silhouettes to have in mind. The Harris's Hawk's wings are broad and rounded. Those of the White-tailed Hawk's are broad at the base and pointed. The Harris's Hawk's tail is longer than that of the White-tailed Hawk's.

A quarter of an hour later another hawk was photographed. It turned out to be another individual as can be seen from the molt of the primary feathers.
