Adam Dhalla, a Coquitlam BC resident, has just released a mobile game that makes it easier than ever to learn about the beautiful birds you can find out in our world. His goal when creating the game was to accurately simulate the birding experience for players in a virtual setting. With birding gatherings being difficult during the Covid-19 pandemic, it is a great tool to learn about the birds you may see around you, and can be fantastic for all ages! Below we've attached a CBC article, the game's website, and the download links so you can learn more about this new and exciting movement for the birding community! We here at the Backyard Wild Bird and Nature Store can't wait to try it out, and we hope you will too.

A lot of backyard feeders are experiencing a surge of Pine Siskins visiting this winter. Pine Siskins do everything in a colony from nesting, feeding, traveling and also lots of squabbling. A problem common to birds that move in a colony is disease. As the birds are so close to each other diseases can pass through colony quickly.
