Journey of the Broad-Winged Hawk

Every year, thousands of broad-winged hawks embark on a treacherous flight.

Every year, thousands of broad-winged hawks embark on a treacherous flight from New Hampshire to South America. JOURNEY OF THE BROAD-WINGED HAWK follows the raptors’ two-month, 4,500-mile migration from New Hampshire, over an Appalachian flyway in Pennsylvania, over Corpus Christi, Texas, and ending in the rainforests of Ecuador and the Maquipucunu Reserve. Along the way, people and communities follow and celebrate the hawks’ journey.
