#featheredfriday A juvenile Broad-Winged Hawk sits atop a pine tree. #DYK To attract and court females, males perform a courtship display flight including cartwheels, dives, & aerial acrobatics. Birds meet in the air, hook their feet together and spiral down together. They are also very patient. This particular hawk attempted to get at Cardinal nest for over an hour before giving up and moving on to find easier prey. #broadwingedhawk#yearofthebird#hawk
