I can’t take credit for this photo. My husband took it last October on the Duffy Lake Road between Whistler and Lillooet. Anyone who has spent time in the Canadian woods knows of the Whiskeyjack. Inquisitive, fearless, and able to recognize people as an easy food source – they gather the moment you step foot in their world. Apparently this one thought my husband’s camera might be tasty.
I say toss the Canada Goose; they’re cranky, poop all over our parks, and generally make a nuisance of themselves. The Whiskeyjack is curious, polite, and charming. In my mind – a far better representation of Canada.
