Animal species: a quiz

The Journal has a quiz about animal species in Montreal as a sidebar to a piece on how climate change is altering the mix of bird and animal species that cohabit with us on the island.

I started the Flickr group Montreal faune/wildlife in 2015 and keep an eye on it: oddly, it’s seen a fair number of pix of snowy owls (which the quiz say aren’t present here) but none of porcupines (which they say are). The group’s got some dedicated bird photographers in particular, and as a city dweller familiar with 3 bird species – pigeons, gulls and sparrows – it’s been enlightening to learn about the many other species that coexist with us.
