National bird

Canadian Raptor Conservancy has some pretty specific ideas about what kind of bird should represent Canada.

Cowan said provincial birds such as the loon, which is Ontario’s bird, or the snowy owl, which is Quebec’s shouldn’t be chosen. The national bird of another country would also be ineligible. He’d prefer an endangered bird not be selected, in case it becomes extinct.

“It should be a bird that every Canadian I think sees in day-to-day life,” said Cowan.

“Personally I feel it shouldn’t have any natural enemies, because I really don’t want my national bird being picked on by some other animal out there.”
