The Greek Theatre at the Guild Inn is made up of columns from the former Bank of Toronto.
Summer theatre is performed and countless wedding photos have been taken. Drake shot a music video here.
Today we had an interesting visitor perched right at the top of one of the columns. A Red-tailed Hawk:
This wasn’t the only hawk that made a guest appearance:

Hail, old October, bright and chill,
First freedman from the summer sun!
Spice high the bowl, and drink your fill!
Thank heaven, at last the summer’s done! – Thomas Constable (1812–81)
