I was in Sarnia today at a job site and had time to snag a few cool birds on site including:
-2 Bald Eagle
-2 Cooper's Hawk (one of which put on a show hunting juncos)
-1 Rough-legged Hawk (Dark Morph)
-1 Merlin that dove on a small songbird.
-Yellow-bellied Sapsucker (rare for this time of the year)
High flying adult bald eagle. All the raptors we saw were heading south along the lakeshore.
The adult cooper's hawk that dove on a small songbird (probably a junco), couldnt quite catch it. I think this guy is a male. He had brownish "hands" contrasting with the grayish colour of the the rest of the wing, indicative of a male.
And a beautiful male cardinal for good measure!
