Celebrating National Indigenous History Month at Waterloo

Birds I View: Campus Wildlife

Ruby-throated Hummingbird.

The wretched April snowstorms have passed, and we’re finally seeing campus come to life with flora and fauna!

Thus, I’ve done a little research and found a lot of information on the birds that you should be keeping an eye out for. And no, I’m not talking about geese.
