Broadwing Movement Maps

Where are the birds?

Movements Overview Live Map

This interactive map shows the birds' latest movements in relation to one another. It's updated LIVE as the broadwings' telemetry units transmit to our database. 

Below is a static, cumulative map showing all movements of our tracked birds from 2014 to 2018, illustrating their migratory pathways from northeast United States through Central and South America.

Sponsor a Tagged Bird

Satellite tags help us understand the movement ecology, conservation threats, and habitat needs of Broad-winged Hawks. Help continue this important work and sponsor and name a bird in honor of a friend or loved one. One satellite unit costs $5,000, and one field assistant to locate nests costs $7,000. With your help we can learn how to conserve our most abundant migrant.
