Broad-winged Hawk | Audubon Field Guide

A small hawk, common in eastern woodlands in summer. Staying around the edges of forest, Broad-wings are often not very noticeable during the breeding season, but they form spectacular concentrations when they migrate. Almost all individuals leave North America in fall, in a mass exodus to Central.

Mark your calendar for the upcoming Orphan Baby Shower event April 20th.

Enjoy dinner tomorrow night at Panera Bread on West Kirby Avenue in Champaign.
