This collage is the August image in my 2024 wall calendar focused on migratory birds of the world. Broad-Winged Hawks migrate an average of 7,000 kilometers from the northeast forests of the US and southern Canada to northern South America, traveling 111 km each day. One of the greatest migration spectacles is a swirling flock (also known as “kettle”) of thousands of Broad-Winged Hawks on their way to South America. As they move from the broad stretches of North America to narrow parts of Central America, their numbers get concentrated, leading people to describe places such as Veracruz, Mexico, and Panama as a “river of raptors.” This collage includes the words “Together,” and “Gather.”
