Like people who live in urban areas, some birds prefer to nest in large groups, very close to their neighbours. Tommy Thompson Park is home to six species of colonial waterbirds that nest in very large numbers - earning its Important Bird Area designation from Bird Studies Canada. Explore the various colonies including Common Tern, Black-crowned Night-Heron and Double-crested Cormorant and learn about these magnificent species and the management programs run by Toronto and Region Conservation Authority.
