The Hawk is remarkable for its flying abilities. During the mating season, both partners engage in aerial games: chases, vertiginous dive, loops, a real show! He has a round head rather voluminous compared to his body, his cheeks are marked with a large black spot and his beak is curved and short. The plumage is gray on the back and white to brownish white on the lower part, punctuated with "tears" brown and the legs are yellow. The Hawk is found in all parts of the world with the exception of the polar regions.
