Birds are amazing creatures. What Canadian is not familiar with the haunting cry of the loon on northern lakes or the honking calls of wild geese gracing our fall sky in V formation? Even our one-dollar coin, affectionately known as the "loonie" portrays the closeness we have to birds. Birds are a big part of our cultural heritage with bird watching being one of the fastest-growing recreational activities enjoyed by 8 per cent of the Canadian adult population. Interest in bird watching has created a multi-million dollar industry catering to the needs of birders. Everything from bird feeders and feed, birding field guides, magazines, birding trips, binoculars, bird baths, computer software and photography equipment are relished by people of all ages in pursuit of enjoying birds. What is it that attracts and fascinates Canadians to birds? Is it their bright colours, or their ability to fly or their melodic songs? Or perhaps, it is the fact that birds are everywhere: in our gardens, in parks, 
in the sky, on trees, on the ground, along roadways and on buildings and hydro lines.
