American Kestrel Near Livingstone Park, Markham

Went for a walk over lunchtime with my camera and telephoto lens to Livingstone Park near where I work in Markham. On my way back I saw something perched on top of a street light pole, and realized it was a bird of prey. I took plenty of photos as a got closer, fearing he would fly away at any moment. As I got nearer though, it was clear that he wasn’t planning to budge from his perch on account of me way down below. So I snapped what I think are some good pics of him:

I had thought the bird was some sort of falcon, but when I looked him up the bird turned out to be an American Kestrel. Cool! 😉
