The Crane hawk (Geranospiza caerulescens) is mainly grey, adults have a distinctive white crescent on the undersides of their primaries, and a black-and-white banded tail. Its long, orange, "double-jointed" legs are used to reach into crevices and cavities to obtain snakes, nestling birds, bats, and other food items. It soars infrequently, and usually is spotted flying low overhead or perching in a tree inside forest or at the forest border.It occurs from northern Mexico south to north-western Peru, and east of the Andes south to northern Argentina and Uruguay.
