Wisakedjak , the Whiskey Jack , Gray Jay , trickster of the North .

Thought some on this forum may have a connection to the new National bird of Canada .
http://news.nationalpost.com/news/canada/hardy-intelligent-gray-jay-beats-out-favoured-loon-as-canadian-geographic-societys-pick-for-national-bird
A bird many of us have enjoyed in Algonquin .
Continued to be amazed by this bird while spending time in the park , during the Winter . It follows closely for miles while on snowshoe , and returns to camp to watch you eat . It wakes you up in the morning with a subtle churp , so distinct to an Algonquin Winter absent but for a few  .

I agree. Sticking out our winters and not migrating south should give the Grey Jay the 'true-north' stamp-of-approval! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

My first experience with an APP Whiskey Jack was at Mew Lake while staying in a Yurt a few years back... very memorable experience..
