Following a four-day  Powershift: Young and Rising convergence, volunteers from PowerShift  an intersectionnal growing movement that gathered youth from all backgrounds across Canada – are marching today in a rally organized for climate justice.

Starting at Parliament Hill, the rally will benefit from the presence of  frontline land and water defenders, black and communities of colour as well as various social and environmental grassroots groups leaders who will make the opening speeches before setting out for the hour long march. This march yet another pressing expression of a growing young mobilization movement spreading wide across Canada to highlight the urgency of climate change, and how climate justice intersects with social and environmental justice.

BIRD OF THE WEEK — COMMON GRACKLE — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD has over 1,500 members and over 102,000 photos and videos. 

BIRD OF THE WEEK

COMMON GRACKLE

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Quiscalus quiscula 
POPULATION: 69 million
TREND: Decreasing 
HABITAT: Breeds in open and semi-open areas. Winters in a variety of open habitats throughout the southeastern United States.

Common Grackles are recognized by their long, keel-shaped tails, fairly heavy and sharp bills, yellow eyes, and (in males) glossy black plumage with an iridescent sheen. The word “grackle” derives from the Latin for Europe’s jackdaw or another crow, somewhat similar-looking but unrelated birds.

The Common Grackle belongs to the Icteridae family, so is related to the Rusty BlackbirdTricolored Blackbird, and Baltimore Oriole. These birds have an interesting trait that helps them use the earth’s geomagnetic fields to navigate.

BIRD OF THE WEEK — SPOTTED TOWHEE — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD has over 1,500 members and over 99,000 photos and videos.

 

BIRD OF THE WEEK 

SPOTTED TOWHEE

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Pipilo maculatus 
POPULATION: 30 million
TREND: Stable
HABITAT: Forest edges, shrubs, thickets, brushy backyards, and parks.

The Spotted Towhee and its close relative, the Eastern Towhee, were once considered one species — the Rufous-sided Towhee — but were recognized as distinct species in 1995. One of the distinguishing features of the Spotted Towhee is the white spotting splashed over its wings and back. (The Eastern Towhee is dark-backed.)

The word “towhee” mimics the loud whistle of the Eastern Towhee. Although the Spotted Towhee retained this name after the species split, its call is actually more of a cat-like mew, reminiscent of a Gray Catbird.
