Two babies, two different counties

2 HY21 broad-winged hawks

Broad-winged hawk babies. One has puncture wounds to rump. One abandoned on ground, no nest found.

These two broad-winged hawks are now unintended siblings!

One broad-winged hawk is from Prairie City and has puncture wounds on its little rump. The other broad-winged hawk nestling was found on the ground in Story County and no one could locate the nest. Youngsters at this developmental age should still be in a nest and somehow ended up in danger on the ground.
