Jenny, Oakville

I live in Oakville, Ontario......(west Oakville), and recently have had a Cooper's Hawk in my backyard, eating it's prey! I've been curious as to where all my regular birds have gone, and now know why. I'm not sure what kind of bird it was eating, but it lasted for 1/2 hour, and then sat low in a nearby tree sunning itself, till I tried to take his or her's picture and it took off. My neighbour also has seen it in her front yard doing the same. It was like having "Planet Earth" in your own backyard, but I miss my bird friends immensely and hope they come back soon.
