l have been a part of a few successful wildlife rescues and educate people on wildlife and environmental issues. We have helped in issues to save wetlands, woodlands etc.to save the precious life within. It is well worth the effort. We can all learn to live and work together. Education is the key. In 2011 I won an education award from Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority for the work and photography I do. Habitat is fast disappearing and with it, many species are also declining in numbers. So many species can actually tell us the health of our environment and alert us to problems we need to know about. They all need to be protected.

Turkey Vultures 3/27/09

 My first turkey vultures this year. 

Great Horned Owl,3/27/09

 This guy was found because l followed the mobbing crows. He got a few minutes rest when l clapped my hands and the crows left.Something catching it's eye!
Enjoying the morning sun.
Wow,that is a look. l think he was relieved to be in much better protection and the crows have left at least for a bit.
Just before he flew to some better protection when l first saw him. The crows were deafening. Look at those eyes. l used my 500 mm lens on 500 and was at a distance. Photos have been cropped.

Bald Eagle March,20/09

 This magnificent adult bald eagle is also a candidate for education. He was enjoying showing off for the camera.Just a look at the physique of a bald eagle. Those powerful legs and feet.
l have seen thee in the wild and is always a wonderful exiting experience. But seeing one up close like this. You are in total au and respect of the bird.
An eagles talons are very powerful. No wonder they can catch those large fish with no effort.
The beautiful bald eagle.

Peregrine Falcon

 This is one of a pair of Peregrine falcons who are nesting in the Burlington area as part of the recovery program. These guys were a long ways away. And l used my 500 mm zoom lens and still cropped. No tripod used so not the greatest. But proof that they are coming back. And was amazing to see them in the nest and hunting.l believe this was the female,she went into the nest afterwards and you could just see her head pop up once in a while. This is a nesting platform built for them and to see them in it and in the wild was wonderful. We can make a difference. The volunteers who help out this program are very dedicated people.
These peregrine falcons have had an issue enabling them from being wild any more. They are used to educate people. 
They are a truly beautiful bird and can fly in speeds of around l believe 200 mile per hour when in pursuit. It is incredible to see and very hard to photograph. l watched the ones above and it was hard with the naked eye to keep up. Amazing!
Does not mind his photo being taken at all. A great program to educate us on the falcon.
