Whimbrel Point

Whimbrel Point, Col. Sam Smith Park

In May of each year, birders gather at Whimbrel Point to count the migrating whimbrels. Some years, upwards of 10,000 of these birds are counted. I’ve read that in some years a quarter of the entire eastern North America population of these birds makes its way past the Toronto waterfront.

As autumn becomes winter, Whimbrel Point becomes a colder and more lonely outpost. It’s left to some dog walkers and to those of us who enjoy wandering the park with a camera through all the seasons.

Have your say...
