Vancouver’s very own Canuck the Crow received some amazing news on Tuesday.

A post on the Canuck and I Facebook page, which is managed by Shawn Bergman, announced that our famous bird is now a “federally protected crow”.


“He has been given a new band to go along with the orange band he’s become so known by” continues the post.

Bergman also stated that this is something that has been in the works for quite some time. The idea was first proposed by himself during the filming of the documentary back in 2016.

“It’s taken a long time to get this approved, and I couldn’t be happier.”

Bergman also thanks Derek Matthews and his team from the Vancouver Avian Research Centre for all their work to make this possible for Canuck.

Congratulations Shawn and Canuck!
