RBA: ACORN WOODPECKER in Bralorne - June 10-16th

At 12pm on June 10-2021, Daryl Thompson found a female Acorn Woodpecker at the bird feeder at his home in Bralorne. The bird was present for 1.5 hours before flying off. Bralorne is located 118 km west of Lillooet and 75 km north of Pemberton via a rough 4X4 dirt road.

**The home is OPEN to the public.**

***The bird was last seen at the same location on June 16th and was viewed by multiple observers. It has not been relocated since.***

Please contact the RBA as there are specific directions to follow for visitors and accessing the location is a bit complicated.

This is the 12th record for BC.
