It's either an Eagle or a Hawk

We were out playing in the snow on Saturday, February 9, 2013 in Dentonia park, behind the Crescent Town buildings, near Victoria Park and Danforth Ave.

I spotted a pair of these birds flying very low over the trees in the open.

I was too delighted and tried taking pictures with not much luck, however my daughter captured one picture.

She also mentioned that these birds were seen near her school, Crescent Town Public School last spring.

Let me start by saying your picture is very lovely I believe by the colour and size of the bird and the fact it's all white the only bird I know that matches this description is the Gyrfalcon. I have seen a few of them myself just once soaring together, they are not native to Southern Ontario but end up here sometimes following prey and coming here in the summer.
