Broad-winged Hawk

; very surprising, a Broad-winged Hawk soaring with other raptors over ridge

This was a Buteo, for sure, but very small. A Red-tailed Hawk near it was much, much larger than it was, but the Broad-wing was much larger, in turn,
than a Sharp-shinned Hawk that was flying near it. The BWHA had big, broad bars on the wide, short tail, black (or possibly dark brownish) and white bars. The vent was white. Brownish or darkish on breast and belly, but with thinner marks toward belly and vent. Wide, pale wings with dark primary tips. Wing linings pale. Observed at about 1130, for a good two or three
minutes as it soared over ridge to north, viewed in scope, sun way off to the right and not a problem. Wings broad, but come to a point at the tip. Bird's
overall shape or impression is stout.
