RBA: ORIENTAL TURTLE-DOVE in Prince Rupert - July 15th

At 6:20pm on July 15-2021, Ken Wright photographed an Oriental Turtle-Dove at Seal Cove in Prince Rupert. The bird was first identified as a Eurasian Collared-Dove, hence the delay in getting the word out.

This is the 4th record for BC

*Multiple local birders went out to look for the bird on July 16th and 17th but could not relocate it.*

**As per current Public Health directives due to COVID-19 - Please remain 2 meters apart when viewing any birds on this list during this time. Please follow all public health directives during this pandemic (including not birding in groups, please wear a mask if you are unable to social distance).
