The boreal forest is a vast band of spruce and poplar, extending from coast to coast across Alaska and Canada. Called North America's "songbird bread-basket," for a brief time, it teems with song. Birdsongs heard on this show include a Common Loon (like this one), Swainson's Thrush, White-throated Sparrow, Black-and-white Warbler, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, and others. You can learn more about "the Boreal" at BorealBirds.org, and take action on behalf of the boreal forest. (Buying recycled paper products can help!)
