The Black-Capped Chickadee has been named Vancouver’s official bird for 2015, beating out the flock of competitors by a landslide.
The winning bird rose to feathered fame during the city’s weeks-long competition that invited Vancouverites to vote online.
More than 700,000 votes poured in for the bird competition, which ended with a grand announcement at the Vancouver Public Library Saturday night to cap off Bird Week.
The Black-Capped Chickadee captured 39 per cent of the votes, beating out the Varied Thrush, who had 29 per cent.
