I visit this park which is on the boundary between Toronto and Mississauga frequently during the year. It has ponds, a river, lakeshore, extensive fields and mature forest.
Very few birds on this day however.
I had the first Red-winged Blackbird of the season in my yard (March 10) :
I received this. (One of my jobs on Antarctic cruises was to stand at the stern and point out the many albatrosses who followed our ship in the open sea).

How wonderful it is to re-visit yet another beloved location in very early spring/very late winter, here. And the close-ups you deliver of botanical detail are–formidable. I guess “fierce” is a better word. I mean it in a good way. Thanks, Miles!
