For the birds

A tiny house lay on a stump in the middle of the trail. As we approached, birds flew away. I explained to my then 3-year-old daughter that this was the local restaurant for birds. She collected seeds on the ground, intending to stand still until they would come back to eat from her hand. It's a good thing she changed her mind, the nature trail was tempting. We spent some time in a small ravine near a curiously shaped old tree, then followed a path down to the meadow. We discovered many nests in the high bushes. The West Humber River runs along the edge of the woods on the other side of the premises. There's a paved path beside it that reaches the main Humber River Trail leading to Lake Ontario. You can download a Discovery Walk brochure from their website, to explore the surroundings.
