RBA: NORTHERN PARULA in Jordan River - August 29th

At 10:30am on August 29-2020, Michael Bentley found a Northern Parula travelling in a loose warbler flock in Jordan River. Although he was not able to get a photo, he saw the bird at close range and it was well described. He said “...clear and close range view of a warbler with blue on the wings and upperparts and two white wingbars. The throat and breast were a clear yellow. The belly was white.” The observer also has experience with this species from living in Ontario.

Directions to the bird: It was seen 70 m along the gravel road beyond the metal gate just before the bridge near a fire ring and garbage heap.

This is the 22nd record for BC.
