The Black-and-white Hawk-Eagle is a large species of raptor found in tropical forests in parts of Central and South America.
Black-and-white Hawk-Eagles feed on a variety of prey items, including mammals, like monkeys, reptiles, and other birds. Usually prey is found while the bird is soaring at high altitude.
Black-and-white Hawk-Eagles can be recognized by their namesake plumage -- they are mostly white with black on the back, wings, and around the eye. The tail has black and grey barring. They sometimes show a small shaggy crest.
