This Red-tailed hawk chick just fledged from its nest on a light tower at Coronation Park in downtown Toronto. It doesn’t know how to fly or manage human structures like the baseball fence from which it hung for over a half hour as it tried to wrap its head around what to do! See all 3 photos for the full story.


Red-tailed Hawk’s First Day Off The Nest

Photo 3 of 3 After its ordeal with the fence, this red-tailed hawk chick decides its happy sitting on the bleachers and not trying anymore flying for now. It sat there as the players began to arrive and setup for their baseball game. It was hilarious watching everyone notice the hawk and wonder where they were going to sit!
