This juvenile Cooper's Hawk caught this bird near the start of the trail out to Willards Island at Hammo today.  I
couldn't tell if part of the bird was missing.  I have a few guesses at what it is, but does anybody else have a guess?
There was a flock of 38 Red Crossbills in the west beach pines.  A single White-winged Crossbill wat at the pulloff
towards Meigs point.  A flock of 10 White-winged Crossbills landed in a leafless tree behind the nature center, a few
of which came down to the pool for a drink.
