Toronto’s Spring Bird FestivalAs you take in the awesomeness of Toronto’s largest green space, the lush setting is sure to grab and keep your attention. With more than 250 hectares of green space and a facility that stretches into Lake Ontario, Tommy Thompson Park is the ideal place for bird watching, and the ideal time is just when the migratory birds make their appearance. But in the odd chance that the scenery isn’t enough, you can also expect to be wowed by the beautiful sights and sounds of the Park’s wildlife residents. Migratory birds (with 318 native species recorded so far) often stop over at this natural retreat as they travel from habitat to habitat. Experts will be right on hand to help arm you with fascinating knowledge about bird migration and the importance of protecting and preserving our birds.
