RBA: BLACK PHOEBE in Richmond - July 25-28th

At 7:15pm on July 25-2017, Doug Martin found and photographed a Black Phoebe at Iona Regional Park. The bird was flycatching at the west side of the SW pond and is still present as of posting time, as viewed by multiple observers.

A gate code is required to enter the sewage ponds. To gain access please email Jude Grass at judegrass(at)shaw(dot)ca

Iona Regional Park is located at 943 Ferguson Rd.

The bird continues at the SW inner pond and it is also being seen between the banding station and the SE corner of the North outer pond as of July 27th.


The bird was seen by a single observer on July 28th near the banding station between the outer north and south ponds.

The bird was not relocated on July 29th.
