Today there was a large flock of Bohemian Waxwings on the Old Keene Road south of the village of Assumption. There was also a very large (possibly) Cooper’s Hawk at Trent University that flew over the science complex parking lot today. I regularly see a male Cooper’s Hawk hunting the birds feeders in this area but this one was presumably a very large female. I wasn’t looking at it through binoculars but it’s size was verging on what I would think was a Northern Goshawk and maybe it was.
