The Puerto Rican Sharp-Skinned Hawk is part of the vertebrate family. Its scientific name is accipiter striatus venator and is found in the Southeastern United States. It is considered endangered from timber harvests and management practices.  
It is about the size of a blue jay and it measures 28 to 38 centimeters. It prefers coniferous/deciduous forests such as the Marico Forest where its habitat is centered. Its babies are heavily streaked with white and brown. They prey on small birds and it is usually confused with the Coopers Hawk.
