Despite its name, the short-tailed hawk (Buteo brachyurus) has a broad tail of average length for a buteo in proportion to the body. It occurs in two colour morphs: the dark morph adult is uniformly dark brown with thin dark bands on a dull white tail. The light morph has white underparts. The short-tailed hawk breeds in the tropical and subtropical Americas from south-eastern Brazil and northern Argentina north through Central America to northern Mexico, as well as in southern Florida, USA.
