Golden Eagle in Weston?

(Weston, Ontario, Canada)

Rumour has it there are two pairs of Golden Eagles in our Toronto neighbourhood of Weston (northwest Toronto).

I saw one myself right near the elementary school, it was gorgeous, but I don't know enough about raptors to know for sure what breed it was.

It was clearly a bird of prey though, with lovely wide wing span.

There is a picture of on our community website If anyone knows what it is, please share your comments on that site.

Thanks for the info - I took a look at the bird on the website you sent, and it sure looks like some kind of Hawk - maybe a Cooper's Hawk or a Red Tailed Hawk. Golden Eagles are found in more desolate places, farther North in Ontario, and don't frequent cities at all.

Nevertheless, it would have been wonderful to see!
