Broad-winged Hawk and Black Swifts

Thomas Turner

Maggie, Wren and I went for a late morning walk on Farren Road today. There were lots of swifts, and we both think we saw Black Swifts among Vaux’s and White-Throated. See the link below for my notes about the swifts.

Lots of soaring raptors too: One Broad-Winged, at least three Harriers, two Kites, Vultures, 3 Red-Tailed, and 3 Coopers Hawks (the Coopers were all up high soaring with the other hawks).

My camera gear / photo skills were sufficient for the hawk but not the swifts:
