Cool about the mountain chickadee haven't seen one since I saw BG's photos from Manning on here they look like masked zorros or something.

Very cool Robin, it's so nice to get out in the wilderness far from the madding crowd isn't it?


Cheers,

Kitimat is a very interesting, and little birded place. It can be a little slow in the winter, but the migrants should start arriving in the next month. Enjoy!

I worked out of a camp in Kitimat a few years ago and spent a lot of my spare time birding. Beautiful area. I'm still a little miffed that I managed to spend an entire summer there and never found a Chestnut-backed Chickadee. I was fortunate to find a bird-finding guide to the local are in a little Kitimat shop; a bit out of date but still helpful.

Are you building the camp for the new LNG project? I'm hoping to be back this year or next for that one.
