RBA: BLACK-THROATED SPARROW near Sechelt - August 7-9th

On the morning of August 7th-2016, Cathy McLellan found and photographed an adult Black-throated Sparrow feeding with some Dark-eyed Juncos on the driveway of her private home in Sandy Hook.

The bird was relocated on August 8th at 1:30pm by John Hodges in the same area. The bird was in a bush at the corner of Skookumchuk Rd and Deerhorn Drive.

At 6:15 am on August 9th, Daniele Mitchell relocated the tame bird feeding in the exact same location that John Hodges had it the day before. The bird was by the stop sign at the corner of Skookumchuk Rd and Deerhorn Drive. Please see map below for exact location.

At 12pm on August 9th, the bird was relocated by multiple observers in the same location as it sat in a cedar tree across from the stop sign at the above intersection.

The homeowner's property is NOT open to the public. When viewing this bird from the public street please be respectful of private property.

The bird was not seen on August 10th.
