RBA: VERMILION FLYCATCHER in White Rock - October 20th

At 3:30 pm on October 20th-2018, Kaichi Huang found an immature female Vermilion Flycatcher perched in a tree in the parking lot west of White Rock Pier. He viewed the bird for 15 mins before it flew and he lost track of it.

This is the first record for the province of BC.

Despite multiple observers looking the bird was not relocated on Oct 20th or 21st.

  1. Dozens of birders combing the beach until sunset, but nobody had the bird. I got there at about 5:30, and nothing.
