*Great Crested Flycatcher October 29

Gord Gadsden found this Great Crested Flycatcher at Island 22 regional park in Chilliwack in the late afternoon. This is potentially the 3rd record for BC. Seen again today, Nov 1st. Details click Here

*This bird was initially IDed as Ash-throated Flycatcher, but note the pale base to the lower mandible, rich yellow in the belly, and obvious orange in the tail. Please comment if you have any further thoughts.
