I was sitting on my back deck this morning having coffee, when this big adult male Red Tailed Hawk landed in our tree.

It was holding a city pigeon in its right talon.

I felt for the still-live pigeon, but that's nature. I know it's not a rare sight, a raptor with a kill, but living in Highpark in Toronto, its pretty rare.

My Nikon was packed away, but I did the best I could with a little hand cam.
