Sightings this week-end

Having the first sunny week-end in quite some time, I went to the Montreal Botanical Gardens to see what was about. The Gulls were in abundance as were Redpolls and Chickadees. Squirrels hung out in their usual areas asking for handouts and the bird feeders attracted Nuthatches as well as various finches. One of the most exciting finds was a couple of Cooper's Hawks (male and female). Here is a sampling of the sightings.
