Sightings for Sunday February 24th

Hatley: I saw a Gyrfalcon (gray form) (Faucon gerfaut) in a field standing over his prey - a black duck on Chemin Nord, Canton de Hatley. I was able to observe the falcon for acouple of minutes and take some photos. I returned later to take more photos of the remains of the dead duck and interesting traces in the snow. - Sheila MacLean
