Gyrfalcon (9) (Falco rusticolus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1034) (Comments - 2355)
Canada (Ontario) Kingston - Wolfe Island - We don't have a lot of Gyr photos so I thought I'd post another view.

Gyrfalcon (9) (Falco rusticolus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1034) (Comments - 2355)
Canada (Ontario) Kingston - Wolfe Island; I waited a long time for this species. It does not show clearly but the cere on the bill is yellowish, rather than pale blue seen on young birds. However, it isn't very extensive so others are thinking this bird is a sub-adult but not a young bird.

Snowy Owl (201) (Nyctea scandiaca) User: Chris  (See all photos - 1415) (Comments - 4106)
Canada (Québec) In a nature scene I've not witnessed, this Snowy Owl suddenly went into a defensive posture. At the same time, one of the observers standing next to me yelled out "Gyrfalcon!". One had been reported in the Mirabel area harassing Snowy Owls last week. It turned out to be a Peregrine Falcon in the end, but an interesting encounter nonetheless.

Gyrfalcon (9) (Falco rusticolus) User: Chris  (See all photos - 1415) (Comments - 4106)
Canada captive / domesticated Gyrfalcon X Peregrine Hybrid seen at Dorval beside the runway 24 left. This bird has a tracking device and is used by the falconer as a means of scaring away ducks and geese from the runways. The bird can soar up to and above the "ceiling" which is the base of the clouds, however with only a hand wave it will return. It was fed a bird upon return. There are also 2 hawks the falconer uses.
