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 in Canada. 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 of southern Canada's mixed wood forests, 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.

Ruby-throated hummingbirds (Archilochus colubris), characterized by their brilliant green and red plumage, have the largest breeding range of any North American hummingbird.

The tough little gray jay (Perisoreus canadensis) is found in northern forests all across Canada, and rightfully so because it’s Canada’s national bird. The jay is known by many names including whisky jack or Wisakedjak, the Algonquin word for a mischievous, transforming spirit who plays tricks on people. Rising temperatures due to climate change threaten this bird’s outdoor food storage system.

The tiny, solitary boreal owl (Aegolius funereus) is found in Canada’s vast boreal forest and high elevation mountains with subalpine forests. In the night, this bright-eyed owl comes alive. It waits on a perch for small mammals and birds before gliding down, talons outstretched, to grab a snack. Agriculture and logging impact their boreal home.
