Java

Broad Winged Hawk

(Buteo platypterus)

 

Arrived at Lakeside Nature Center on August 10, 2017.

This bird was brought to the Nature Center, suffering from a fracture to the left wing.  When the fracture failed to heal correctly, Lakeside Nature Center obtained permission to keep him as an education bird. 

Based on his small size, Java is presumed to be a male.
