An Ontario Ministry of Transportation traffic camera caught what looked to be a peregrine falcon perched high above Highway 417 near Churchill Avenue in Ottawa this morning.

Or at least some of it.

The camera-shy bird chose not to show its head for a glamour shot.

It'll have to work up its courage if it ever wants to become as famous as this Montreal snowy owl, which was also caught on a traffic camera.
