Perched hawk

Recommended Posts


Can anyone help ID this hawk that flew into my neighbor’s tree earlier today [northern NJ]?  It seemed to be on the smallish side, so that and the time of year lead me to suspect Broadwing.  Thoughts?

A Red-shouldered Hawk would have more white on the wings.

Agree with Broad-winged.  Compact build with solid dark brown wings and head.


Thanks for the reassurance, everyone!  👍
