In 2016 the Gray Jay won the Canadian Geographic National Bird Project. The goal of the project was to declare an official bird for Canada by the 150th anniversary of Confederation. Almost 50,000 people voted, and so the humble Gray Jay beat out nearly 450 species of birds, including old Canadian stalwarts Common Loon, Snowy Owl, Canada Goose, and Black-capped Chickadee. All that said, this comic won’t clear up a single question you might have on this awesome bird. I’ll leave it to the smarties at Canadian Geographic to tell you more.
