RBA: GREEN-TAILED TOWHEE in Nakusp - May 5-6th

At 8:15 am on May 5-2020, Julia Flesaker found a Green-tailed Towhee in a private yard at 425 9th Ave NW. The bird was viewed from the alley near the soccer field at Nakusp Secondary School. The homeowner is ok with birders looking from the alley but please be respectful of private property and do not enter the yard.

Directions: Turn west off Hwy 23 onto 4th St NW. Continue past the school and to the end of the playing field. Walk up the gravel lane. Th bird has been frequenting the third and fourth back yard along the lane. 

The bird was last seen in the same location on May 6th and was viewed by multiple observers. It has not been relocated thus far on May 7th.

This is the 13th record for BC.
