Boreal Birds

Boreal Birds

Stretching from Alaska to the Atlantic Ocean, North America's Boreal Forest is one of the world's largest intact forests. It accounts for 25% of the earth's remaining forests, covers 1.4 billion acres, and is larger that the Brazilian Amazon. North America's Boreal Forest supports some of the largest populations of wildlife such as grizzly bears, Woodland Caribou and wolves, and provides vital breeding grounds for up to a third of North America's land birds (up to a billion warblers and 500 million or more sparrows) and 40% of its waterfowl.
