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!
