The Canada Warbler can be seen as our most patriotic songbird, at least by its name. About 80% of the global breeding range of this threatened songbird falls in Canada, including the southern Boreal forest, Atlantic Canada and the mixed forests of the Great Lakes St. Lawrence region. Listen to the Tweet of the Week to learn more about this species and be sure to check out what Nature Canada has been doing to help protect this threatened songbird here.

Each week we introduce a new bird from the Ottawa-Gatineau area through our segment on CBC Radio’s In Town and Out. Alex MacDonald, Nature Canada’s Manager of Protected Areas, shares interesting facts about the birds that live in our communities. Be sure to tune-in to “Bird Tweet of the Week” on CBC Radio One 91.5 FM on Saturday mornings from 6am to 9am and listen to past episodes on our website.

This episode aired on Saturday August 27th, 2016.
