Roadside Hawks are little buteos (a type of bird of prey) found in parts of Central and South America. They may be as small as 12 inches tall (males are smaller than females).
Roadside Hawks are highly adaptive and may nest in a variety of habitats (despite the rather specific name); nests are built by both parent birds. Two eggs are laid and incubation is taken care of primarily by the female.
