  1. Hi there. Great pictures Ann, I love the fox. I live in Toronto, Canada, and earlier this week, my wife, Jean, and I came upon an adult Red-tailed Hawk in Markham, Ontario. We have read that stalking a hawk is no easy task,that you have to sneak up on them when they are looking the other way. Well, this Hawk was only looking one way when it landed, and that was right at us! Fortunately, we had our camera with us and got some good pictures and video. We have posted them for anyone interested at:

    1. Thanks Bob.i look forward to seeing video. i suspect that is a juvenile as they are very curious. thanks. ann

  2. Well Ann, our luck certainly seems to be holding in the Raptor department. This past Friday, Jean, and I, had a Coopers Hawk land in our backyard here in Toronto. I think it also might have been a juvenile Hawk? Unfortunate its landing in our backyard was at the bad luck of another bird, which was at our Nijer feeder! We have yet again posted our pics and video at:
