The American goldfinch (Carduelis tristis) is a common sight at backyard birdfeeders. Before storms the birds will feed in a frenzied manner to increase energy before and during the storm. This behaviour may increase the American goldfinch's chance of survival under adverse conditions.

Bohemian waxwings (Bombycilla garrulus) are nomadic, boreal forest birds that nest in northern bogs and muskegs. In winter, they travel in large flocks of up to 10,000 individuals searching for leftover tree fruit throughout much of southern Canada. Known as 'party' birds, bohemian waxwings often gorge themselves on berries causing a type of drunkenness and much revelry.

Red-headed woodpeckers (Melanerpes erythrocephalus) are one of only four woodpeckers that cache their food, including nuts, seeds, fruit and insects, in trees for later use. With distinctive bright red heads and big personalities, this woodpecker's antics and aerodynamic fly-catching provide great entertainment. Their habitat in central and eastern Canadian provinces is threatened when the old trees in which they nest are cleared for development.

The black-capped chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) is one of six chickadee species on the continent. Named for its signature call – "chickadee-dee-dee" – its broad range extends across the country. During cold winters, this songbird drops its body temperature to conserve energy, using the downy insulation of its feathers to keep warm.

Blue jays (Cyanocitta cristata) are found in many southern mixed wood forests in Canada, making them well-known to both wilderness campers and suburban dwellers. Their bold colour comes from the inner structure of their feathers, which are not actually blue, but appear so because of the way light reflects off of them.
