Pearl Kite
Got this lifer yesterday.

Beautiful small hawk species. I believe it is the smallest hawk that occurs in Brazil.
It really likes to feed on lizards, but won't miss any easy opportunities to catch other birds, small mammals, or even insects.

This fellow was very far from me. Had to crop the image a lot.
