Salut Neil - Thank you for your comments. The fall colors are almost over here in Piedmont, Quebec. Now it is cleaning up time - milions of leaves on the ground. I have spotted a Falcon a few days ago - he captured a small chipmunck ( petit suisse ). I went to the Piedmont city hall and the mayor informed me that a family of five Falcons is living in the woods near Prevost, Quebec.
If I am lucky the next time I see them I will have my camera ready. I do not know if Falcons do stay around for the winter - I have to check that out.
