Help us monitor an extraordinary event!
Twice each year, Broad-winged
Hawks make the journey between their wintering grounds in Central and South America and
their breeding territories in the northern deciduous woodlands. During migration, the
Broad-winged is extremely gregarious, often converging into massive flocks called kettles.
Enthusiasts look forward with anticipation to days when conditions are right to view huge
kettles of these neotropical migrants as they soar in the thermals.
This fall, BirdSource invites you to participate in tracking Broad-winged Hawks movements
through the Western Hemisphere. With the advent of the Internet is allowing us to track
this migration online. We invite you to help us, by submitting your Broad-winged Hawk
observations to BirdSource. Using your information, we will provide daily maps and
summaries describing this hemispheric migration event.
Thanks for your participation!
