A reminder that the Birding BC website is not yet hooked up to forward Rare Bird reports to either the Victoria RBA hotline or Nanaimo's RBA line.

In the interim, if you have a rare bird to report that was spotted in the either Southern Vancouver Is. or Nanaimo area, by all mean post a message here but please either the Victoria Natural History Society or Nanaimo's RBA hotline to report your sighting.

RBA Hotline for Victoria and Southern Vancouver Is.

RBA Hotline for Nanaimo Area

Thanks,

Admin

What constitutes a rare bird? I am guessing that its a bird never or seldomly seen in the area. However, there are also birds that suddenly appear one day in an area and are not seen for many months and seem to appear for a few hours six months later and only stay for a few minutes. Two examples of this are the Red-shafted Norther Flicker(s) that come to my feeder once every six months. I believe they are in migration both in the winter and the summer, so they only stop a short time on their way to their destination.

a rare bird is one that doesn't normally live in BC. everything else is a 'delightful occurrence'.
