|Cryptic Forest Falcon|
|Range||south-eastern Amazon rainforest in Brazil and Bolivia.|
The Cryptic forest falcon (Micrastur mintoni), is a new species of forest falcon in the Falconidae family. It is found in the south-eastern Amazon rainforest in Brazil and Bolivia. While uncommon in its Amazonian range, it remains widespread, and is therefore rated as Least Concern by BirdLife International and IUCN. Unlike the Lined forest falcon (Micrastur gilvicollis), with which it has long been confused in a cryptic species complex, adult Cryptic forest falcons only have a single white tail-band (in addition to a narrow white tail-tip).
