Happy Birthday, Jack!
April 10 is the birthday of the late Jack Miner, a Canadian conservationist known by some as the "father" of North American conservationism. "Wild Goose Jack,” as he was often referred, was one of the first conservationists to determine the migratory paths of North American birds and is credited with helping to save the iconic Canada Goose from the brink of extinction.

COSEWIC status: Not at Risk
The Common Raven (Corvus corax) is one of the heaviest passerine birds and the largest of all the songbirds. It has a ruff of feathers on the throat, which are called 'hackles', and a wide, robust bill.
A raven may live up to 21 years in the wild, making it one of the species with the longest lifespan in all passerine birds. The Common Raven is observed across the Northern Hemisphere, and it is the most widely distributed of all corvids.
