I spent the morning at the dog park near Boundary Bay Airport. Lots of local sparrows (golden-crowned, fox, song, towhees), and among them, two white-crowned sparrows.

Hi Mike great find where exactly in the North 40 dog park (off 72nd St) did you find them?It is quite a big place so exact location would be helpful.

Lovely photos by the way.

Mel

Douglas Bamford relocated the two WTSP's today at the same spot Mike had them near the oak trees heading northward down the middle paved path near the large tree on the left that has many white blossoms.


Cheers,
Mel

The tan-morph bird has been present in the park though since March 5th and has been moving around a bit.

Katya Kondratyuk relocated both WTSP's yesterday in the same spot! She says the best time to see them is after 5pm as she has seen them several days at this time.


Cheers,
Mel
