    Comments: I was heading back to my truck when I encountered this bird perched in a shrub on the river bank near the amphitheater. I snapped a few photos before it flew south along the river. I caught back up with it and viewed it perched 2 additional times. The third time, it flushed, flew up high, circled a couple of times, and disappeared onto the Washington side of the river. I immediately knew this was either a Red-shouldered or a Broad-winged Hawk. Several features including the mostly horizontal red barring, dark trailing edge to the lower wing and thicker black than white bands on the tail made me initially think broad-winged, but I talked myself out of it because that would be so incredibly unlikely in late December. Neil Paprocki relocated it in Washington on Dec. 28, obtained better photos, and definitively IDed the bird as a Broad-winged. We will both submit documentation to the Idaho Bird Records Committee.
