Colonel Sam Smith is my favorite park to visit!  There’s always lots to see and photograph.  At the moment the red-necked grebes are starting to nest.  Also, the tree swallows have arrived!  Other sightings may include great blue heron, night herons, turtles, and many more birds!  This park is located at the foot of Kipling in Etobicoke.
