Sightings for Tuesday July 28th

Montreal: 5:30 pm on Jumonville between Monsabré and Lacordaire, I saw what I believe was a Broad-winged hawk (Petite buse) lifting a pigeon belly up from the ground and going into a tree... I noted a white line near the tip of the tail, the fact that the prey bird was not much bigger than the pigeon but with larger wings. Once in the tree I noted a rather small head and beak and dark chest. The bird was 5-6 feet from where I was on the sidewalk walking my dog, in front of an apartment building where 6 pigeons normally feed... - Mireille Goulet
