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.

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 I was fortunate to find a bird-finding guide to the local are in a little Kitimat shop; a bit out of date but still helpful.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.
