RBA: RED-THROATED PIPIT in Saanich - Sept 23-Oct 6th

At 5:15pm on Sept 23-2018, Jeremy Gatten found a Red-throated Pipit in a fallow field at the Vanreight Bulb Fields (Longview Farms) in Saanich. He was able to get a recording of the bird which you can listen to HERE. He had the pipit on an off for 30 mins as it got flushed by a Cooper's Hawk. 

The address is 8277 Central Saanich Rd and a Map to where he saw the bird is HERE

The bird was photographed by David Bell on Sept 24th.

This is the 55th record for the province of BC.

The bird continues in the same location as of Oct 6th and has been viewed by multiple observers.
