The Galápagos Hawk
Scientific name: Buteo galapagoensis
The Galápagos Hawk is one of the predators of the finches and other birds on the Galápagos Islands. The hawks also prey on insects, rats, and small lizards, and will scavenge dead animals they find. Hawks are not common on Daphne Major, but they have been occasionally spotted there.
