Birds of a feather freeze together

The Black-capped Chickadee with its bib and white cheeks are as identifiable by their looks as by their song. The state bird of Maine and Massachusetts resides as far north as Newfoundland and Alaska all the way to the middle of the US. (Daniel J. Rowe, The Eastern Door)

The feathered friends of Kahnawake must be just as confused about this never-ending winter as the rest of us, as the sparrows, downy woodpecker, chickadees and this charming killdeer flap around the community waiting for the flowers and fauna of spring.

The classic House Sparrow is a delight all year round in Kahnawake and everywhere really. This one was chilling on the island enjoying the sun. (Daniel J. Rowe, The Eastern Door)

The Downy Woodpeckers are all over town knocking their faces into trees in search of bugs and treats. This one was making a racket in the Eastern Door’s backyard last week. (Daniel J. Rowe, The Eastern Door)
This Mourning Dove decided to show off its wingspan outside of Eastern Door reporter Jessica Deer’s house during the annual spring cleanup day Friday. (Daniel J. Rowe, The Eastern Door)

Dear Readers:

As an essential service that is still open during the COVID-19 pandemic, The Eastern Door is fighting hard to keep news like this flowing, in our print product, though an online subscription at and here, for free, on our website and Facebook.

But when a large portion of our regular revenue has disappeared due to so many other businesses being closed, our circulation being affected by the same issue, and all of our specials canceled until the end of the year, we are looking for alternative ways to keep operations going, staff paid, and the paper out every Friday for you to enjoy.

Please consider a financial contribution to help us keep doing what we do best; telling the stories of our people in a contemporary medium – a solid, continuing archive that documents our cherished, shared history. Your kind donation will go to a newspaper that stands as the historical record, in-depth, informative and award-winning news; colourful stories, and a big boost to the local economy by employing 95 percent local workers.

Also, please consider subscribing to our e-edition, which comes out Thursday night, at today, or pick up your copy Friday morning in Kahnawake, Kanesatake or Chateauguay. Akwesasne delivery has been suspended due to the pandemic and border issues.

We exercise real freedom of the press every single day. Without our reporters fighting for the truth our community would be missing a whole lot of facts, separated from gossip and rumors.

E-transfers are accepted and very much appreciated at: [email protected]
