RBA: WOOD THRUSH in Nanaimo - May 23rd

At 5:45am on May 23-2018, Nick Smith found a Wood Thrush foraging on the ground on the trail that runs west to east at Planta Park in Nanaimo. The bird sang for 15 mins and he made a recording of the bird, which you can listen to HERE. He was not carrying a camera and therefore was unable to get a photo.

To access the west side of Planta Park (off Planta Rd), park by the Planta Park sign. The bird was singing 100m east along the trail and before the boardwalk. The park trail can also be accessed from the east side of Planta Park, where there is a small parking lot on Stephenson Point Rd.

Multiple observers looked for the bird on May 24th but it has not been relocated as of posting.

This is the second record for the province of BC.
