Just wondered if anyone else has notice the increase in sightings of Cooper's Hawks and Peregrines. Lately I've been seeing a lot of these two birds during my wanderings around Delta and Ladner. When I catch up with editing my images I'll post a couple. l,,
Hi Roy. We got four Peregrines on the Chilliwack Christmas count which was a record for us. The Cooper's were maybe less than usual.
However here at the yard we've had four Cooper's and a Sharp-shinned taking turns coming by. Two juveniles, (one banded) and two adults one being an interesting colour which is how we can tell the two adults apart. A Merlin checks things out ever few days as well.
Look forward as always to seeing your photos.
