A few days each year, the Don Valley Parkway closes for maintenance or for a race. It reminds me of what it would be like if a great river dried up now and then. Of course it doesn’t become truly silent as there is a constant stream of vehicles on their way to performing various tasks.
Today I prowled about and had a look at both the highway and some of the surrounding nature.
I will identify it at the end of the post.
This is clearly a chick. A Baltimore Oriole chick.
Hi there. I am sending you this article in the off chance that you did not know about this whiffling thing. That chance would be .01/100. That’s the least amount that you probably don’t know this , but my math may not be correct!

Why aint’ it always summer ?
I could sleep late
And stay up till midnight catching dew worms for bait
Now i’d be combed and curried
And worry again

A Baltimore Oriole chick! I considered a couple of possibilities, but that wasn’t one of them.
Great scenes, beautiful botany. It’s always amazing to experience the DVP empty and relatively silent.
