Well it's been a while but there's a new rare bird out there! Not a mind-blower but a nice one indeed to warm up what has been a very chilly week for the entire province. On Feb 7 Donna and Guy Monty found a NORTHERN MOCKINGBIRD along Surfside Drive near the Little Qualicum River Estuary (NW of Qualicum Beach, Vancouver Island).

Bird is continuing as of at least Feb 21. It it seems to favour the holly bush near the junction of McFeely and Surfside Drive.
