The Western blue flag (Iris missouriensis) is found in just a handful of sites in the southernmost part of Alberta. This stunning, but threatened, plant has very particular requirements; climate, suitable habitat and a narrow environmental tolerance limit its distribution. Habitat loss and alteration are important factors that have lead to its imperiled status in Canada.

The dazzling bright-blue plumage and sweet song of the Western bluebird (Sialia mexicana) is a wonder to encounter in the open wood- and parklands where they nest in old snags. Unfortunately, their population in southwestern BC has seen a sharp decline due to habitat loss, reduced food supply, and increased competition for nest sites from the non-indigenous House sparrow and European starling.

They do not build their own nests, but will make use of abandoned nests of other large birds or squirrels.
