Toronto’s High Park is a convenient and attractive destination for birding.
In the Spring & Fall, High Park is an important stop-over for migrating birds. Well over 150 species are seen regularly.
Most of the birds will continue north. But more than 50 species stay in the park and breed, i.e. raise a family.
