Falcons are awesome

My cousin and I were out taking pictures of nearby deer and came upon a falcon.


We got up as close as 2 ft away and it flew only a few branches away & seemed to like playing cat & mouse with us.

What an awesome way to spend an afternoon in London, Ontario at Greenway Park.

Thank you for your report and great pictures - I'm not sure what kind of bird this might be, but I'm sure some of our readers will know!

Check back and see if anyone can identify this raptor.

Raptor family
by: Frank

Your Red-tailed Hawk belongs to the raptor family called, "Buteo," rather than, "Falcon."

Hi there. These are awesome photos of a juvenile red-tailed hawk. It seems he/she was not very shy. Perhaps it was raised in an area where there were a lot of humans. He looks very healthy. His parents did a great job! :)
