Although only about 80 raptors were seen today by Niagara Peninsula
Hawkwatch counters at Beamer CA in Grimsby, ON, they included 10 species.
About 30 each of Sharp-shinned Hawk and Broad-winged Hawk made up most of
the total, with a single adult Peregrine Falcon and a pair of Osprey
being the highlights. A Northern Goshawk and an unidentified eagle were
reported offsite. Non-raptor highlight was a Tufted Titmouse, the first in
about five years at Beamer.

To reach Beamer Memorial Conservation Area from the north or east, take
Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) Exit 71 in Grimsby.  Follow Christie St. South
and Mountain Ave. to the top of the escarpment. Turn right onto Ridge Road
West and follow to Quarry Road.  Turn right and follow to the park
entrance.  Parking is permitted in the lot or on Quarry Road or Ridge
Road.  Visitors should remember not to leave valuables in their car.
