Broadwinged Hawk At Springbrook

 This young Broadwinged Hawk was released today at Springbrook Nature Center by Amber Burnette from The Raptor Center.

It's rehabilitation was complete and now it is healthy enough to join other Broadwing Hawks in their migration to South America for the winter.

These hawks nest in and around Springbrook, and a pair was regularly seen and heard over the trails throughout this past summer. 

Keep an eye out next year for this hawk with the band on its left leg.  It might return to this same area.
