Broad-winged Hawk Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite:  Broad-winged Hawks are one of those species I see quite a bit, but I don't have a massive number of photos. That's because my typical sighting is seeing one at the edge of a forest clearing, and then having it slip away into the forest as I get close. My favorite photo is the one below, a bird that was so intent on hunting earthworms that it didn't care about the guy snapping photos from 30 feet away. From Newton Hills State Park in South Dakota, in May of 2019.
