> For the past two weeks I have been seeing what I believe are a pair of Juvenile Broadwinged Hawks in the woods near my home in Fayston. What first called my attention to them was seeing them feeding on the ground. Hard to see what it was they were trying to eat. There are a pair of them and they are less secretive and cautious than adult Broadwings, and they call, fairly plaintively, quite frequently during the day. I hear the typical Broadwing two note call, but there are no adults around ever, and the birds do not call while circling in flight (which is usually how I become aware thaat there are Broadwings in the area). I never see these birds up in the sky, just on branches 10-20 feet up..though they can fly, and are fairly large.
I am wondering if these birds are without parents and having trouble finding food. Anyone familiar with Juvenile Broadwinged behavior who has some ideas?
