gray jay population declining in Algonquin Provincial Park

We were saddened to read about this study from the University of Guelph. It speaks to how climate change may be affecting the Gray Jay, also known as a Whiskey Jack. This is one of our favorite feathered creatures and you’ll see a photo of one, taken in Algonquin Park on a wilderness canoe trip, featured on the masthead of the Tidbits feature on our website.
