What bird has a white chest, throat, and tail, is used by Canadian falconers and almost NEVER make their own nests? It’s the merlin! I think the merlin should be Canada’s national bird because it has a white chest, throat, and tail which could represent the white on Canada’s flag. They are also known to hunt cooperatively. Plus they are distributed almost everywhere in Canada for hunters. My last reason is, merlins are found almost everywhere in Canada.
My first reason that I think the merlin should be Canada’s national bird is because if it’s colours. It has a white chest which could represent the white in Canada’s flag. The second reason is that they can hunt cooperatively similar to the way Canada helps other countries when they need it. This could symbolize Canada’s power when helping other countries.
My next reason the merlin should be a symbol of Canada is because they are distributed all around Canada to hunters to track down and kill other birds. This could represent Canada’s power and perseverance when alone. An additional reason is that the merlin would represent Canada is that it is found almost everywhere in Canada. They can adapt to most places in Canada including lakes, bogs, prairies, forests, and a couple more places.
Finally, I think that the merlin should be a Canadian bird because of its white/brown colouring, its ability to hunt together, the fact that it is sold to hunters, and the fact that it is adaptable to most places in Canada. Vote Now!
