Broad-winged Hawk

Estimate

1
Swainson's Hawk

Bird was observed in a kettle of Broadwings. Was able to pick out the obvious size, darkness, and shape of the bird instantly both with binoculars and then scope. Bird was dark or intermediate in color, when banking no obvious underside lit up like the BWHAs. Long pointed wings in all postures. Similar in size to a RTHA but the pointed wings and coloration rule that out.

1
Red-tailed Hawk
