Is this a Broad Winged Hawk?

Is this a Broad Winged Hawk?

Saw this raptor perched high up in a tree in the Maple Hills neighbourhood of Waterloo.

Sighting was around 9 am.

I believe it's a broad-winged hawk, but please correct me if I'm wrong!

I'm sure one of our readers will be able to identify this raptor, so check the comments on this page over the next few weeks.

Thank you for sending this to us.
