This broad-winged hawk was seen Oct. 7 at Frontera Audubon and photographed by Dan Jones.

Are these the birds that were circling Weslaco late afternoon, early evening on 07 Oct? I also noticed them today, leisurely circling about SW Weslaco, further south of the Frontera site. My daughter and I followed them for a bit, she photographed them, but they were too high to get a clear picture.
The black vultures you and your daughter are watching are riding the thermal air, regrouping and preparing to catch the wind and head south when the next cold front arrives.
