Burdett upright piano

With fly on keyboard (thrift store)
Burdett Oshawa Canada - upright piano, c. 1900 - no info on google on this company - there was a Burdett piano company in Chicago but it doesn't say if this was a branch plant. There were piano companies in many towns across Canada in the 19th Century - I'd imagine the cost of shipping them made local manufacturing more attractive. People had to make their own music, then record players and radios came along....

Red Tailed Hawk

Not interested in squirrel

Held its foot like this - didn't see any injury
Red-tailed hawk (Buteo jamaicensis), Buse à queue rousse, June 23, 2018, Gray's Creek Marina Centre, Cornwall, Ontario - it let me approach quite close, not bothered - thought it might be stunned or something, but it flew off normally towards some blackbirds.
For scale - card marked 3 inches / 7 centimetres
