Wild Toronto, Red-Tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis). thanks Renata

This Red-Tailed Hawk or (Buteo jamaicensis) , almost starled me as it was sitting on a low branch of a tree. I have never seen it in High Park, which is in the middle of the city.

There were actually two birds, maybe a couple! It was a large bird, about a half a meter from head to tail.

I could get relatively close, then the bird would just hop on another branch or tree.
