Long Branch Park is the area along Lake Ontario just east of Etobicoke Creek.
There are some apartments nearby which have resident pigeons:
Some balconies keep them away with these owl figures:
The real stars here are the gulls:
The holly! the holly! oh, twine it with bay—
Come give the holly a song;
For it helps to drive stern winter away,
With his garment so sombre and long. – Eliza Cook (1818–1889)
