Last month, we learned about the Alder Flycatcher, an almost perfect look-alike to the Willow Flycatcher. Though there are a few things that set them apart. For one, the Willow Flycatcher makes a tidier nest than its cousin! Learn more about this species in this week’s Tweet of the Week!

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 June 18th, 2016.
