The grey morph Gyrfalcon was seen this morning at 11:40 a.m. at the Laflèche landfill east of Casselman.  It was in hot pursuit of an American Crow which it chased over the landfill and into the woodlot to the south where I lost sight of them.  The entire encounter lasted only a couple of minutes with much diving and evasive action..

Directions:  From Highway 417 just east of Casselman, take exit # 58 and head south on Highway # 138 for 1.5 kilometres.  Turn right on Laflèche Road and travel to its end.  Park on the side of the road and do not block the gate (which was closed today).
