A Galapagos Hawk is a raptor bird that is found in the Galapagos Islands. They are a medium sized hawk, and have brown feathers with white markings on their wings. They live mainly on small prey, such as lizards, snakes, and rodents.

Galapagos Hawks are very well adapted to the harsh environment of the Galapagos Islands. Their strong legs allow them to perch easily on cliffs, and their keen eyesight helps them spot prey from afar. They are also excellent flyers, and can reach speeds of up to 45 miles per hour.

Despite their adaptability, Galapagos Hawks are endangered due to habitat loss and hunting by humans. However, conservation efforts are being made to protect these birds, and they are still found in large numbers on some of the islands.
