RBA: GREAT-TAILED GRACKLE in Williams Lake - May 5th

At 8:30 am on May 5-2018, Lubna Khan and Sean and Betty Donahue found a singing male Great-tailed Grackle on a cottonwood tree on the Scout Island Causeway (Scout Island Rd) on Scout Island in Williams Lake. Lubna Khan was able to get some great shots of the bird. The bird was subsequently viewed by multiple observers until 8:15pm.

There is a second female Great-tailed Grackle currently in the province in Vancouver. You can read about that bird HERE.

This is the 6th record for the province of BC.

The bird was not relocated on May 6th, despite multiple observers looking.
