Red-Tail Hawk in Victoria Park

by Rebecca Schleppe
(London, Ontario, Canada)

I was walking my dog through Victoria Park when I saw a rather large bird across the street.

He was sitting on the lawn of St. Peters Church in London, Ontario.

He sat there for a bit and then he went from tree to tree in a circle, looking very majestic.

I have never seen a hawk that close to downtown London before.

Thank you for sending us these pictures and your report - I'm sure our readers will enjoy this as much as I did!

Isn't it amazing to see these birds going about their business right before your eyes? I had the privilege of seeing a Peregrine Falcon circling above me & my dog one day. He was so close we could see the beautiful pattern underneath his wings. Possible.. he was hunting rabbit, as they are abundant here by the shores of Lake Ontario. Now I never go out without my camera!
