As promised in my June 22 post, here are images of a Cooper's Hawk Jean and I observed on the slope of the Niagara Escarpment. We were hiking on the Bruce Trail side trail that links the Wetland Ridge to Woodend Conservation Area when we spotted this Accipiter.
It then spotted us...
...but continued to dine despite our presence.
Oops! I dropped my dinner.
The hawk picked up its prey and carried it to another roost to finish off its meal.
