The Keffer Marsh on the West Don River in Vaughan is a 2 hectare engineered wetland complex consisting of the marsh and a larger deciduous swamp. It is considered to be the largest constructed area of its kind in Ontario.
I never know what birds I might encounter on any day and was pleased to find a Northern Mockingbird here.
Mockingbirds, though not common, are moving farther north as winters become less harsh.
There were also a few starlings:
Announced by all the trumpets of the sky,
Arrives the snow, and, driving o’er the fields,
Seems nowhere to alight: the whited air
Hides hills and woods, the river, and the heaven,
And veils the farm-house at the garden’s end. – Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–82)
