October Zoom Program
The Triumph and Downfall of the Canada Jay
Dan Strickland
former Chief Park Naturalist, Algonquin Park

7:30 PM
Thursday, October 15, 2020


The Canada Jay accomplishes the extraordinary feat of
living year round on permanent territories in Canada’s
vast boreal forests, from the Yukon to Newfoundland and
north right up to the treeline. Even more amazing, it nests
in late winter, with its young fledging well before most
migratory boreal birds have even returned from the
south, let alone begun nesting themselves. Dan Strickland
has been studying this remarkable bird for over 50 years,
mostly in Ontario but also in Quebec and British
Columbia. In this talk Dan will present what he and others
have learned about how the Canada Jay succeeds in doing
the seemingly impossible and why, now, our warming
climate threatens the future prosperity of this iconic
Canadian bird.
