MAGNIFICENT HUMMINGBIRD north of Kamloops - July 4th

July 4--This apparent adult male Magnificent Hummingbird was photographed at a private residence in the Bridge Lake area north of Kamloops, BC. If accepted, this would constitute the first record for British Columbia, a first for Canada(as far as I can tell), and the most northerly record of the species in the World (Mags regularly only occur as far north as Arizona and New Mexico).

Apparently it has not been seen since the first day. For the time being, the homeowners have requested to keep the exact location private.

If the status changes, I will update this post.

  2. For the record, what was the name of the people who found the bird? This is an important piece of information that should be included.

    1. They wanted to remain private and have the name not released.
