Broad Winged Hawk

Buteo platypterus

Description:

"A small, stocky, forest-dwelling hawk of eastern deciduous forests, the Broad-winged Hawk is hard to see on its nesting grounds. It becomes more conspicuous on migration when it congregates into flocks and passes by hawk migration lookouts in the thousands." - The Cornell Lab of Ornithology: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Broad...

Habitat:

Small rural town where it does what it can to avoid the Common Grackle.
