LET'S ALL HELP PROTECT THE NESTING GREBES

The Toronto Region Conservation Authority has posted these notices close to the nesting platforms being used by the two Red Necked Grebe pairs.  Observers have reported eggs in at least one of the nests.  This is the third year that these persistent uncommon birds have struggled to raise families in our park.

It is imperative that we do more than simply walk by saying "Tut tut" to ourselves when we witness photographers, dog walkers or curious park users getting up real close to these birds.  We need to speak up and remind them why the notices are there.
