Surprise Summer Visitor!

sunny 74 °F

Today after hearing it's distinctive piercing, high-pitched call, my mom and I tracked down a surprise Broad-winged Hawk sitting in a tree in our front yard! This is a big surprise because usually these birds are found in the deep woods during the summer, and I have never heard of one being seen in Oak Park during the summer before. Very cool!

Awesome. Didn't we see one during one of the spring walks in the alley close to Ridgeland?
