      By Dr. Jeff Wells, Boreal Songbird Initiative. One of the world’s greatest migrations is happening now. Billions of migratory birds are heading from the U.S., Central and South America to what’s been dubbed “North America’s bird nursery” —the sprawling billion-plus-acre boreal forest that spans the continent from Alaska across Canada to Newfoundland and Labrador—to nest and. family of boreal birds to another. 1 For the purpose of this report, Canada’s boreal forest is defined as the area covered by the Canadian portion of four boreal and taiga Bird Conservation Regions (BCRs). Together these BCRs encompass million km2 of land (2 million square miles).

        We were here to glimpse hard-to-spot boreal bird species — birds from Canada’s Great White North that fly down to Sax-Zim from December to March. Owls are . Merlins are small, fierce falcons that use surprise attacks to bring down small songbirds and shorebirds. They are powerful fliers, but you can tell them from larger falcons by their rapid wingbeats and overall dark tones. Medieval falconers called them “lady hawks,” and noblewomen used them to hunt Sky Larks. Merlin populations have largely recovered from twentieth-century declines.

Canada’s boreal forest represents 25 per cent of the planet’s remaining intact forest. This forest is quite an amazing place; more than species and billions of birds rely on Canada’s boreal forest as critical habitat and a safe place to have their young.
