Extralimital records of birds, including diurnal raptors, are frequently set in localities along migration flyways. Normally, these records pertain to a few individuals that are away from their usual flight routes and found in areas that range from tens to a few hundred km from their usual distribution. Here, we report 77 migration records of Nearctic hawks and eagles from a site in the Neotropical region. These records belong to five well-known Nearctic species: Golden Eagle, Northern Goshawk, Bald Eagle, Ferruginous Hawk, and Rough-legged Hawk. The Veracruz River of Raptors Project's (VRR) observational data represent the most reliable and abundant data source of raptor migration along the region and country, including the southernmost cluster of records of these Nearctic species in the continent.
