Multiple large birds of prey in Kingston

We've been lucky enough to see several large birds in and near Kingston, Ontario, over the winter, including a Bald Eagle soaring low over the highway 401 between Kingston and Gananoque.

In addition, this week we have had Red Tailed Hawks and Broad Winged Hawks into the neighbourhood.

Some of the Hawks appear to be preying upon doves which the locals are overfeeding. (They have encouraged a very unhealthy pest population of doves and pigeons with this practice.)

The best part about Kingston is the occasional sighting of Peregrine Falcons.

I live in a high area and catch a glimpse of one at least once a year. They also enjoy eating doves and pigeons.
