I see you.

Yikes, I was spotted by this Red Tail Hawk eyeing me.  The bird was visiting Toronto’s Tommy Thompson Park during bird migration season. The park is a 5 kilometer long spit made of construction waste  over the last 50 years or so.  It is (luckily) a wild park and undeveloped, which has now become home to a wide array of creatures, including wolves, coyotes, beavers, hawks and all manner of birds.  As well, it is a globally significant migration site, where birds nest or rest on their long journeys north or south.  Actually, Mr. (or Ms.) Red Tail was there as part of an educational program from a wildlife center that assists injured animals.  I can see why mice scurry into their bolt holes when they are caught in this bird’s sharp laser-like gaze.

p.s. the reflections in the eyes are of the world out there, including yours truly.
