RBA: BLACK PHOEBE in Chilliwack - June 11- July 15th

At 11;:30am on June 11-2018, a Black Phoebe was found by Kevin Cherry at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack. The bird was hawking insects from a bush by the east side of the bridge over the pond near the nature house building. It would also hawk insects from the interpretive sign by the nature house. He was able to photograph the bird on June 13th and it was viewed by multiple observers. The bird appears to be carrying nesting material under the bridge.
