Yesterday was only the second time that people in Ontario celebrated the new holiday, "Family Day." Rob and I decided to get out and enjoy the sunshine.

We started the day by having brunch at my favorite restaurant, Dr. Generosity's and then headed to High Park for some birding.

The parking lot were we usually park was full so we had to park a little deeper in, causing us to visit a different area of the park, which worked in our favor. We saw a lot of different birds; cardinals, gold finches, nuthatches, sparrows, chickadee's, hairy and downy woodpeckers. I was even lucky enough to have a male nuthatch land in my hand for a peanut!

We hadn't been to High Park since last spring, as it's a great place to visit during spring migration, turns out it's a great place to spend Family Day too!

Sounds like a nice day!

We're going to High Park on Sunday.

Yup, what a great afternoon. Nice full belly of brunch and then a sunny afternoon in the park. It was worth losing a day's pay...
