Abstract

We report an observation of a juvenile Rough-legged Hawk (Buteo lagopus) on the north slope of Pico de Orizaba, the highest mountain in Mexico. To our knowledge, this is the southernmost record of the species. Furthermore, our observation is possibly the highest recorded elevation for the species.
