Subject: [obol] Re: Broad-winged Hawk photos
This was a great learning experience for me, and I appreciated the photos to compare, since I’m a very visual learner. Thank you to all of you seasoned birders out there who are willing to school us who are not as knowledgeable. BTW, Barry, your photos are amazing!

Red-shouldered and Broad-winged are really the only options and it lacks the extensive white in the folded flight feathers and coverts that should be seen on a Red-shouldered at this age. On Red-shouldered the dark tail bands are typically broader than the light tail bands. The broader terminal dark band on the tail favors Broad-winged as well. Nice find!
