Broad-winged Hawk - Juvenile

 There was a pair of juvenile Broad-winged Hawks hanging out in the trees in the building lot where I was working during the month of August. They were being very vocal as juveniles often tend to be. The following shots were taken on two days, four days apart with the bird landing in the same tree on both occasions.

 I can't say for sure whether it's the same individual on both days but it seems likely.  The markings look similar although the lighting was different, bright sun one day and some cloud on the other and you're seeing the bird from two different angles. It's probable that the bird's parents nested somewhere in the immediate area given that they seemed reluctant to leave, often perching directly overhead. August 10 and 14, Little Harbour NS.
