Lake Ontario

Thirty-four miles from Niagara Falls the Niagara River empties into Lake Ontario, the last Great Lake in the flowing river of freshwater seas.  On the Canadian shore in the Province of Ontario, a peregrine falcon that started its peregrinations from a tall building in Detroit follows the shoreline.  The falcon passes the industrial city of Hamilton, then passes Burlington, Oakville, Mississauga and then spots the tall buildings of Toronto.  The swift falcon lands on top of a tall building where she can dive upon birds.

Cities with tall buildings are a good habitat for peregrine falcons and benefit the cities by cutting down on nuisance birds.  From the top of a skyscraper, the falcon can see sailboats on the lake and freighters passing the second largest city on the Great Lakes.
