Posssible Broad-winged Hawk I-5 in National City

David Povey

I drove south on I-5 at noon today and had a small buteo fly across the road right in front of the car just above

my line of sight. The birds under wing was bright white, with a bold black tips to the primaries. The primaries appeared

pointed at the tip.The belly was light colored and uniform. The birds flight seemed unsteady in the vehicles wind streams.

Then it was gone into the Navy base. So I could not confirm other field marks.
