    Broad-winged Hawk-Buteo platypterus
    Broad-winged Hawk-Buteo platypterus, Order FALCONIFORMES - Family ACCIPITRIDAE - Subfamily Accipitrinae. This beauty was over 100 feet high in the canopy in the Big Woods in Heuston Woods.

    "    •     A recent study attached satellite transmitters to the backs of four Broad-winged Hawks and followed them as they migrated south in the fall. The hawks 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. Once at the wintering grounds, the hawks did not move around much, staying on average within 2.6 square km (1 square mi)."
