Documenting the nature that lives with us and around us in our cities. It's more than just pigeons and rats.

Urbane Wildlife

Two bald eagles made a crash landing at a Minnesota airport yesterday. The pair had locked talons mid-air and then fell from the sky when they were unable to free themselves. They were taken to the St. Paul’s Raptor Centre but one managed to escape by jumping out of the car and flying away. The other is currently being treated for its injuries.

Love them or hate them, there is no denying they are clever.

Toronto earned its nicknamed “Raccoon capital of the world” this week when this little guy was filmed tightrope-walking across power lines in the city’s east end.

It’s been decades since Bald Eagles made their home north of Lake Ontario. Back in the 1970s they were almost wiped out thanks to toxins like DDT. But now they are making a comeback. After many years, a pair nested in the Royal Botanical Gardens and has successfully hatched two chicks. They are expected to start flying sometime in June.
