At 8:45am on May 31-2020, Carl Hughes found a male Chestnut-sided Warbler halfway down Lohbrunner Rd. here where the Easteen Phoebe had been sighted.

The warbler eventually moved to some oak trees at 4368 Lochside Drive where it was singing until 10:45am.

Multiple observers got to see the bird.

The bird was not relocated thus far on June 1st.

This is the 77th record for BC.
