Cooper's Hawk - 13 Nov 2011
I then picked up my Dad and drove out to Belle Isle to look for the Snow Geese and Ross' Goose that was reported yesterday. We failed to find them, but there were also few Canada Geese to be found on the island this morning. The Blue Heron Lagoon held a hundred Canvasback and a handfull of Gadwall, while the Detroit River held American Coots, Common Goldeneye and Bufflehead.
We then took a drive through Dad's old neighborhood near St. Charles - just across the street from Belle Isle. We stopped to take some pics of his old house where he grew up, stopped by the Capuchin Church and Mt. Elliot Cemetery before heading home.
