RBA: DICKCISSEL in Saanich - Nov 25th

At 8 am on Nov 25-2020, Chris Saunders heard a Dickcissel call 8 times. He was able to record it as the bird flew over him as it headed towards Nelthorpe Rd. He was standing on the Aspen Loop Trail near Tuesday Pond when he heard the bird.

Map to location of where bird was last heard is HERE 

Birders should look all around Swan Lake for this bird in sparrow flocks and also watch the feeders at the nature house.

A recording of the bird can be heard HERE

This is the 28th record for BC.

The bird has not been relocated on Nov 26th, despite multiple observers looking.
