Raptors with John Ruddy

In this wonderful winter of the Snowy Owls, we were fortunate to see 6 during our afternoon field trip in the Arnprior-Pakenham area.  They provided ample opportunity for picture-taking.  Along with the owls, we counted 3 Red-tailed Hawks, 1 Rough-legged Hawk, 1 Northern Shrike and 1 Cooper’s Hawk.  Two of the Red-tailed Hawks were a mated pair sitting side by side, providing an excellent opportunity for comparison.  Quite a good list for one winter afternoon!
