The ruins of an old TV tower in my backyard are used by many birds as a place to rest, usually are birds I can see every day as doves, sparrows, great kiskadee..
I was going to work when I saw this falcon in the place. I never had seen such bird and I was surprised by its feather patterns. It is a Micrastor ruficollis (Barred Forest-Falcon), wild from northern-Argentina to southern-Mexico.

Tenho uma torre de TV abandonada no fundo do meu quintal e geralmente os pássaros gostam de ficar lá, em especial rolinhas, andorinhas e pardais.
Certo dia estava indo trabalhar quando notei esse gavião diferente, e fiquei maravilhado com a beleza dos padrões da sua plumagem. Esse é um falcão- caburé ou gavião-mateiro (Micrastor ruficollis), nativo do norte da Argentina até o sul do México.
