RBA: CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER in Vancouver - June 22nd

At 10am on June 22-2018, Cole Gaerber found an adult male Chestnut-sided Warbler at Jericho Park in Vancouver. The  bird was foraging and moving along the tall trees south of the tennis courts.

This is the third Chestnut-sided Warbler currently in the province the others being in Malcolm Island and Powell River.

This is the 69th record for the province of BC.

The bird was relocated at 12:30pm singing in willows between the duck pond and the south end of the rugby field and is still being viewed by multiple observers as of 4:45pm.
