Birds of a feather flock together! This is true! They do in this section, where we’ll give you a sampling of the 462 species of birds you’ll find across Canada.

And where do most birds gather in Canada? In British Columbia, where you may find 362 species, and in Ontario, where 318 species regularly appear.

Many of these species migrate to find suitable breeding grounds, more favorable temperatures and food supplies in winter. Some of them travel great distances—in the fall, many Canada geese make the trip from the Arctic to parts of the United States, sometimes covering more than 1 000 km in one day.

Spend some time in this section. If you find you’d like even more information concerning our feathered friends, find your way to Issues and Topics.
