RBA: BLACK PHOEBE in Ladner - Aug 5-23rd

At 3:45pm on August 7-2019, Ken Wright found a juvenile Black Phoebe at Fuller's Slough at Reifel Bird Sanctuary in Ladner.

The bird was flycatching over the water at Fuller's Slough. The bird was still present when he left at 4:15pm and multiple observers had seen the bird.

**The bird was first photographed by a traveling birder named Tristan Jobin HERE on August 5-2019. He only reviewed his camera after reading the report on the bird alert on August 7th. **

At 4:30pm on August 8-2019 the Black Phoebe was once again seen HERE along the East Dyke.

***On Aug 23rd - the Black Phoebe continues at the same location (as on Aug 8)***
