Red Tailed Hawk in my neighbourhood

by Daniel
(Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

I live right in the downtown core of Toronto and notice pair of Red Tailed Hawks soaring in the sky almost everyday chasing the pigeons and sometimes squirrels.

They must be a resident pair that live very close by and I have noticed a few young Red Tailed Hawks in the area also, and very big nests in some of the trees in the back of where I live.

Sometimes they are so close to the ground, on the ground, in very low trees and perched on fences.

I have had the great opportunity of getting very close pictures on my cell phone and even with Pigeons in their claws and eating them.

I just love seeing this beautiful wildlife in this lovely city we call Toronto.

I also enjoy the other great people on here and the stories and pictures they post and I just love reading the other wonderful wildlife people are seeing here.
