Always a pleasure to catch the beautiful Canada Warbler and today we’ve caught 4! Unfortunately this species is listed as Threatened on the Species at Risk Act as it has declined by 62% between 1970 and 2014. This hatch year male is about to embark on a 3,000 mile journey south! pic.twitter.com/n156ZmS8sq Retweeted by Fiera Biological
