RBA: BLACK PHOEBE in Rosedale - August 7-10th

At 2:10pm on August 7-2021, Marc Sole and Catherine Denny found and photographed a Black Phoebe at Cheam Lake Wetlands. The bird was actively flycatching from the nearby vegetation and logs. They viewed the bird for 15 mins from the floating bridge as they looked west over the lake.

This is the 33rd record for BC.

On August 10th, the bird was seen west of the viewing platform near the picnic area. The bird has also been seen north of here near the creek outflow.
