Smaller, and less often seen than other Buteos, this bird is crow-sized, with a 30-40” wingspan. But like the larger Buteos, they soar high using thermals. Adults have dark brown backs, white bellies and chests with horizontal reddish brown or brown barring, but there is a dark morph that appears almost completely brown. On juvenile birds, however, the chest and belly barring is longitudinal. The short tail is dark grey-black with white lines along the middle, base, and tip. The painting is of another another resident of the artist’s property, though the Broad-Wings lived well-apart from the Red-Shouldered Hawks. The painting depicts a male with a Red Squirrel that were abundant on the property.
