Did you know that a ruby-throated hummingbird only weighs as much as a nickel?
Or that yellow warblers are sometimes tricked into raising another bird's young?
Have you ever had a chickadee land in your hand to eat bird seed?
Over four hundred species of birds live in Canada. Some are well-suited to survive our winters, while others travel great distances to escape the cold. Some are fierce hunters who stalk the forests, while others can be found singing right in our own backyards. Here are just a few of the amazing birds who call Canada home:
- Black-capped Chickadee
- Great Horned Owl
- Downy Woodpecker
- Ruby-throated Humming Bird
- Northern Shoveler
- Ruffed Grouse
- Yellow Warbler
