What kind of hawk (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Taken in Morningside Park, Scarborough, Ontario Aug 30/17. I was shooting right into the sun, He landed in tree right in the sun almost. When he flew he went across the sun & behind trees so couldn't see what it looked like in flight. Couldn't find any immatures or adults on Nature Instruct or any other site or my books. At first thought juvie red tailed but no marking on chest. I hope this pic helps

This really is a good view of the Osprey's feet. Although I have seen them pick up birds as well as fish.
OMG. you are so right. I lightened up the pic even more & zoomed straight in on the head, I couldn't even see the white on top of head before. I just listen to the osprey call & that's what we heard, The talons helped too, Never have seen hawks with talons like that. Thank you all. PS. First time we have ever seen one in this park, this far inland from a lake
