Paul noticed something that was watching him like a hawk and then he realized – it WAS a Hawk. In fact he spotted 2 Broad-Winged Hawks holding court in the neighbourhood trees in Edmonton. “They were calling to each other and have been around for about a week – magnificent!”.
DID YOU KNOW? The Broad-winged Hawk comes in two color phases: the common light phase and a rare dark phase. They breed in deciduous forests and use wetlands and meadows to eat. A recent study analyzed transmitters on four Broad-winged Hawks as they migrated south in the fall. They migrated an average of 7,000 km (4,350 mi) to northern South America, and traveled an average of 111 km (69 mi) each day. A flock of Broad-winged hawks is called a kettle.
