Wow, as a Canadian I was surprised to find out that Canada doesn’t actually have an “official” national bird! Yes indeed… like me, i bet you likely suspected it was the Canadian goose or perhaps the loon but nope, sorry!
Via Canadian Geographic, the public is invited to vote for their selection. Pick your favorite from a host of options categorized as raptors, songbirds, seabirds, game birds and more.
