Squeezing Out The Last Few

Today we had a decent west wind and several of us including Ron, Peter, Terry 2, Walter and I were hoping for the elusive Redtail #1000. No luck!! We did see
1-Northern Harrier(a beautiful male)
5-Sharpshinned Hawks
2-Coopers Hawks
1-American Kestrel
9-Total Raptors

Sunday and Monday may have a chance for a few birds, but unless there is a drastic change in the forecast, there will be little to nothing before then.
  We did see some good small birds fly past, including White-winged Crossbills, a few Eastern Bluebirds, a few flocks of Common Redpolls, Purple Finch and hundreds(at least) of American Goldfinch. We saw one Red-headed Woodpecker.
  Of special note 2 swallows were seen of unknown species. Were they Cave Swallows who knows.  Keep your eyes open if U are at the park, there will be stuff to see.

My 16 year old student just saw a bald eagle in the Hurontario/Dundas area of Mississauga. He said the bald eagle was flying with a dead hawk in his mouth! The student looked at your photos and said he was a mix between a juvenile and adult bald eagle because it still had spots around his neck!
