Birders are asked not to trespass and please do not block driveways. The homeowner has graciously scattered seed to enable viewing, as the bird frequently feeds from the ground with House Sparrows.

The bird was last seen on Sept 30th and was been viewed by multiple observers. It was not relocated on Oct 1st.

*As per current Public Health directives due to COVID-19 - Please remain 2 metres apart when viewing this bird. Please follow all public health directives (including not birding in groups) during this pandemic. The BC Public Health directives can be found HERE*
