Toogood Pond in Unionville is named after the Toogood family who bought the property in 1939.
The park runs along the banks of the Bruce Creek:
Palm Warblers usually breed in bogs in the northern part of Ontario and winter in the United States, central America and the West Indies. There, they are often seen in palms.
They are easily identified because of their constant tail-pumping.
Other Birds that I was able to photograph:
In genial Spring, beneath the quiv’ring shade,
Where cooling vapours breathe along the mead,
The patient fisher takes his silent strand,
Intent, his angle trembling in his hand:
With looks unmov’d, he hopes the scaly breed,
And eyes the dancing cork and bending reed. – Alexander Pope (1688–1744)
Absolutely wonderful. The turtles made me laugh! Thanks, Miles!
