Canada’s National Bird Contest!


I love birds, and I love Canada.  I’ve never not had a great time in Canada or when birding, and birding in Canada has been wonderful.  So it is with a sense of great excitement that I share with you this contest to name a national bird for Canada!

Go vote today – here’s mine:

Gray Jay/Canada Jay/Whiskey Jack because . . .

The national bird should occur across the country.
The national bird should not leave the country when it gets cold, eh? (sorry common loon)
The national bird should not also be common much of anywhere else. (sorry ruffed grouse)
The national bird should not also have the nickname “fool hen”.  (sorry spruce grouse)
The national bird should be a survivor, with a plucky spirit, a keen mind, and an endearing sense of humor.  It’s Whiskey Jack, wings-down.
