Birding "Unexpected Discovery"

I would like to thank Roxanne Hooper from the Langley Advance for taking the interest and time to sit down with me and talk about the Fraser Valley Regional Library (FVRL) Cultural Month activities slated for the month of March.
Naturally the interview veered onto the topic of avian photography, which may be of no surprise to some of you, my close friends think all I do is sit around watching "Footy" all day. Hmmm!
So far the turn out for the birding presentations "Birding in the Lower Mainland" has been very encouraging showing that birding and getting out in nature is an ever popular activity.

The Red-flanked Bluetail is still at Queen's Park in New Westminster. 

I had heard the bird had changed into breeding plumage so I went down on Friday to have a first hand look.
 After checking my files from Jan I couldn't see too much difference.


  1. John, what a wonderful sighting I had yesterday! I discovered your site thanks to the Langley Advance. I'm an avid birder living in Aldergrove and look forward to following along with you!

  2. thanks for the update John! cheers
