There are more species of song birds in Ontario than any other type of bird. There hundreds of different song birds in the province. We have taken the TOP 35 most common and were possible grouped them (Crows, Finches, Nuthatch, Sparrows, Swallows and Wrens). All are in alphabetical order. Song birds eat different thing depending on the species but primarily either eat seeds or insects. They are not predatory like Raptors or even waterbirds. They live in nests off the ground and have adapted to an urban environment to an extent. Some species migrate each year. The major injuries to song birds are hitting windows, cars and cats. Loose cats have become a major problem that is shrinking the song bird population.
