The popular Vancouver City Bird election is taking flight once more.

The 2017 nominees for an official permanent City Bird were generated by a public process called Words for Birds.

Over 1,300 residents contributed words that reflect qualities of the people who call our city home. Vancouver bird experts then matched the qualities to four local birds: Anna’s Hummingbird, the Spotted Towhee, the Northern Flicker, and the Varied Thrush.

Voting begins on April 28th and will close on May 14th. The winning bird will be announced as the permanent City Bird on May 16th.

You can vote for one of four local birds online and in-person at ballot boxes at select locations.

As part of the Vancouver Bird Week festivities, running from May 6 to 13, look out for the candidates at various bird events that will be taking place across the city.
