This morning I received a promising report of an Acorn Woodpecker (7 previous provincial records; 5 since 2010), in an urban neighbourhood in south Burnaby. The bird was observed for some time along Rumble Street between Sussex and Nelson Avenues. (Janice Fletcher)
A subsequent search later the same day (March 11) came up empty. Let us know if anyone manages to relocate the bird. As this is a semi-urban area, please respect private property and act appropriately under the circumstances.
