I report the first sighting of Aplomado Falcon (Falco femoralis) for Puerto Rico and all of the West Indies. I observed a single individual at Laguna Cartagena National Wildlife Refuge (southwestern Puerto Rico) on 15 January 2008; the individual stayed until 25 January 2008. Photographs establishing the bird's identity were obtained during prolonged periods of observation by several observers.
