Canadian Geographic: “After two years, nearly 50,000 votes and thousands of public and expert comments, the Canadian Geographic National Bird Project concludes. Meet our newest national emblem.”
Of course we turn to Twitter for varying opinions….. with all that’s going on in the world, Canada is outraged at our choice of bird. Gotta love it!
Canada has a new national bird, the Gray Jay. aka Canada Jay, WhiskeyJack, or Wisakedjak (mischievous prankster from Algonquian mythology) https://t.co/jAORfwqKYP

@l_stone The best part is their explanation for not using the popular vote results because: "that’s how you end up with Boaty McBoatface."

Just heard most compelling argument for gray jay as Canada's official bird: it doesn't fly south in the winter & can mate outside in -30C
