Birds of prey I can't recongize.
I am an avid cycler and love the trails we have in this great city we call Toronto and I consider myself very lucky at the amount of wildlife I have observed on my bike rides.
I was returning from my bike ride about a week ago and was just by the old train tunnel just before the Riverdale foot bridge and I just noticed this really huge black bird that I had first thought was a Turkey Vulture, however, I knew it was not because I have worked with, and observed them before and this was nothing like I had ever seen before.
It was flying lower and looked like it landed somewhere by the River and I had tried to follow it but the brush was just too thick and I lost sight of it.
The wings were thick, and got thinner as they neared the tip of its wings, it was very dark black like night, and the wingspan must have been about 4, or 5 feet.
I have been riding this trail and I am never surprised by what new animals I may observe down there on this trail, seeing this amount of wildlife in Toronto is just amazing.
But this one bird I have never had the pleasure of seeing before and I do not know if I will ever see it again.
Has anyone else on this site ever had the pleasure of seeing this species of bird before?
It did look like a bird of prey.
