 Common Backyard Birds

  • Best Bat Facts  They look the part of an evil villain, but it is only the adaptations of survival that have resulted in their unique look. They live in caves and other equally dark places and they make eerily spooky sounds. But let’s stick to the facts about bats.
  • Canada Jay  
    Meet this energetic, gregarious Jay that will quickly become one of
    your favourite birds. You may even be spurred on to visit an area where
    you can share lunch with this fun bird.
  • Great Blue Heron Facts  One of the biggest and best fishermen of the bird world. A beautiful bird, a denizen of the shore.
