To answer to Ron who said " According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology map, Quebec is at the extreme northen edge of this bird's range, and is there only in the summer. I wonder how common it is up there."

The Coopers Hawk is not so widespread here but there's a good population here and there. This picture have been taken in a urban park , the Montreal Botanical Garden , where the birds are completely free. Since 5 or 6 year , there's a familly who's nesting in the MBG. These juveniles are so funny to observe in their learning :) and they're not affraid by our presence :O This year, they're 5 young birds

Thanks for your comment !

Dom :)

Nice pose with good detail and background.

According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology map, Quebec is at the extreme northen edge of this bird's range, and is there only in the summer. I wonder how common it is up there.
