  • Etnográfica:
    This hawk gets its name from the sound it makes. Three are plenty of snakes to eat, so the snake hawk was a fairly common bird around the lagoon edge and down the beach where there are mangroves behind . As of 2009 still encountered, though not as frequently. Some say that if he hollers from a tree with leaves, he is begging for rain. If, on the other hand, he is hollering from a dry tree with no leaves, he is begging for "sunhot."
