I left at 7:15 to walk to Morningside Park. I got there around 7:40 & saw what I thought at first was 5 or 6 deer just past the 1st barrier after the 1st parking lot. Then I decided, they were too low for deer. Looking closer I thought wolves but I don't think we have wolves in Toronto. Looked closer, they were coyotes. I wonder if coyotes change colour for winter> Sadly the picture I took did not turn out. From now on I bring my Swarovski's with me to see better.

EIGUOC and East Coast: First of all, great pixs of foxes in the snow. Itís been a long time since Iíve posted here, but we are now getting some good critter sightings from our house. A couple of days ago a very scrawny-looking coyote meandered by but had disappeared by the time I got my camera. Today, 3-5-10, two eagles were atop a nearby tree. We often see eagles in this tree, and I have a spotting scope on a tripod in the kitchen where we can view the eagles. However, I went outside to get these pictures on a sunny day here in the Pacific Northwest.

edkeagle, you are so lucky to have eagles outside your window. They look so good against the clear blue sky. Last year I was lucky to have a pair of Red tailed hawks nesting somewhere on the ravine hill behind my apartment. I'll go thru some of my 100 pics of the fledglings & find the best ones to post here

Hello eiguoc: Enjoyed the red-tailed hawk photos. I've never been able to get a good photo of one, although they frequent the local area. -- Ed

Cherry-tree woodpecker, 3-11-10. When working at the computer, I can look through the window at two of our cherry trees which are now in bloom. We have suets on both trees, and today a Northern Flicker, a black squirrel, some robins and what I believe to be a Downy Woodpecker stopped by for a snack. Photos from the first suet, taken from behind a glass window.

The Downy continued, 3-11-10. The first suet was nearly empty when the woodpecker went to work, finally moving to the second suet where food was still available.
