The Canada Jay as Canada’s National Bird?? In terms of national symbols, Canada has a tree, a mammal, two national sports and even a horse, but it does not have an official bird. Birds contribute big bucks to Canada’s economy via the fast-growing hobbies of birdwatching and bird-feeding; they provide a number of direct biological services; and they add intrinsic value by inspiring artists and aviators. Breeding in every province and territory, the tough Canada Jay remains in Canada year-round, being able to breed in very cold temperatures. As a member of the corvid family, it is arguably among the smartest birds on the planet! Best of all, they have not been chosen as an official bird for any geographical entity to date! Join Dr. David Bird, Emeritus Professor of Wildlife Biology at McGill University as he chronicles the quest to make the Canada Jay the national bird of our country.
