White-browed Hawk
I was quite lucky with this rare hawk (which was a lifer). I heard it calling persistently and finally spotted it high up in a massive castaña tree. But I was with a bunch of students, so I only got a few shots before it took off. The next day I returned alone and played a recording, and soon had not one but two birds turn up in the same tree!
