Todays birds were:
17-Merlin(new one day record)
A few Northern Harriers, Turkey Vultures and a Red-shouldered Hawk flew past very close and low. I did manage a decent Turkey Vulture photo and an interesting Harrier shot where it was looking over and checking us out.
Mike 4 got some great shots. There is a Redtailed Hawk flying out over the lake, a fantastic shot of a Northern Harrier and in my sleepy haze I almost forgot that we witnessed a great rumble between a Coopers Hawk and an American Crow. Thanks to Mike for these shots.
Patty sent along these shots of the Coopers vs Crow "smackdown"
We also had a few large flocks of Eastern Bluebirds today. Id imagine we saw 200-300 in total. Pine Siskins moved back and forth through the park much of the day too.
As near as I can tell so far, from other southern Ontario sites, noone had a huge day, so there still remain many Turkey Vultures and Redtailed Hawks to move yet. Through next Saturday there doesnt look to be a decent day for a large movement of raptors, so stay tuned and watch incase there are any changes in the weather predictions.
