I’ve always wondered about the greenbelt area just west of the airport, so today I went to investigate.
Etobicoke Creek, which I am used to seeing at Marie Curtis Park, runs through the area:

I will identify it at the end of the post.
This one was singing its heart out. Gray, longer-tailed than a robin and showing white patches indicates a Northern Mockingbird.
I was very amused a couple of weeks ago to see a Kingbird chasing a Raven.

Cat-bird wants you in the garden soon.
