To get to Joshua Creek, take the QEW to Ford Drive and head south. At Devon
Rd., turn right and go a couple of blocks to Maple Grove arena. Park here
and take the trail behind the north end of the arena. Go down the hill and
turn right on the main trail. Follow this about 20 meters and turn left over
the bridge. Follow the trail on the north side of the creek, going under
Ford Drive. Keep going until you reach an embankment, then cross over to the
south side of the creek. Turn left and keep following the trail eastbound
but on the south side of the creek. Most of the birds were in this area.
