June 27 to Aug 11 (+?)--Yet another Barwit at Boundary Bay
Mike Tabak(photo and report)--
"About 3:30 pm on the rising tide I scoped a distant shorebird flock on the
tideline from the foot of 104 st. Even at 400 meters a godwit was visible among the black-bellies, and the rich orangy/chesnut colouring on the bird was distinctly different than the the paler cinnamon tones of the usual Marbled Godwits. This godwit was a male alternate Bar-tailed Godwit, the first I've ever seen at Boundary Bay ! This makes 3 different Bar-tailed Godwits since May 12 in the Vancouver area."
AUG 11 UPDATE-- Still present (Ilya Povalyaev et al.)
