The Gray Jay, also-know-as: the Whiskey Jack or Canada Jay.
After two years, thousands of votes and both public and expert input, the Canadian Geographic National Bird has been crowned.
The Gray Jay can be found all over Canada and stays year-round but its preferred habitat is Canada’s northern and mountain forests.
Canadian Geographic made this decision even though there was more public support for the loon and snowy owl. Canadian Geographic’s argument was that they weren’t going to select a bird that’s already a provincial symbol.
Not everybody agrees. What would your choice be??
Wtf is a gray jay?
