A few of us were fortunate to see this female Coopers Hawk dining on a fresh kill. Not sure if bird or small mammal but likely bird. Her mate was perched very close on a log watching her eat.
Although I had not paid much attention to American Kestrels at the Fletcher Wildlife Gardens near downtown Ottawa for the past several years, recent events have piqued my curiosity about them once again. Someone even put up a new white box on the red barn. I will report on any Kestrel sightings soon as I see them. Stay tuned.
