More From Ottawa

I have a healthy obsession with red-tailed hawks.

More drawererings from the Museum of Nature in Ottawa!


They have a couple different specimens at the museum. Just like the ROM! I think the ROM has four (on display)...

On Christmas Day, I saw (and heard, holy crap) a pair of them hunting pigeons over Sherbourne st, just outside my old apartment in Toronto. In a museum, they’re pretty brown and dull, but when they’re in flight with sunlight going through their tails… That’s how they got their name. I love them.
