BC Brambling #5

Brambling Mania has reached the Sunshine Coast with a confirmed sighting in the Gibsons area. Gibsons resident Peter Feichtner spotted the bird roughly a month ago, and local birders John Hodges and Marcia Mason confirmed the sighting February 3rd. This is the second Brambling record on the Sunshine Coast in 40 years of record keeping and the fifth current Brambling record in BC!

  1. Another Brambling, a female has surfaced from Vernon on Jan 2 & 3, 2013 too, so this is the sixth this winter!!

  2. IS it possible to know where these sightings were in Gibsons? Which part of Gibsons. Thanks
