Thumbs up Canada has a New National Bird!


Nominee's for this title were
the Canada Goose, the Loon,
the Black Capped Chickadee and the Snowy Owl

as well as the Grey? Gray Jay.

The Gray Jay won!

Grey Jay wins top bird



This interesting little gray bird is well known to be fearless of people and will easily take food from your hands.

It never migrates south in the winter preferring to stay in Canada year round.

It also nests and sits on eggs during -30C in the icy cold winters!

I like this choice.

Now all they have to do is secure the spelling of Gray or Grey for this Jay.

I've never seen those before, they're very pretty! Strange how they'd be the new National bird when people didn't necessarily find it that iconic. Have you seen the jays we have in the UK? They're a medium sized corvid, very loud and VERY cheeky. There's a pair that nest by me. I think they're really pretty and different looking. Always a highlight when I get to see one

Interesting colorful jay you have there I WANT ONE!



When people mention jays in Canada I think most people think of the blue jay.
They are feisty loud mouth schnooks that love to scrap with other birds and often win.
They don't back down!




In fact Toronto has named their Baseball team after a Blue Jay.





I want your cute little Robin to live here too!

Our robins are big wren sized mouthy beasts.
