the Canadian Thunderbird in the Yukon, circa 1982

The Canadian Thunderbird is a rare bird found in Northern Canada and Alaska. It got its name because they are described as "fast birds that strike like lightning".

Habitat Edit

It generally lives in northern Canada and near the Alaskan border. They prefer places that have damp coasts and warm forests. Unlike other birds, during the winter, they don't travel south instead, they travel to the cooast, where its warmer and the fish are out.

Canadian Thunderbirds are social and tend to live in packs. The only time they're alone is when the fathers go fish for the mother and its baby chicks.
