On Dec 17/23-Jan 29/24, the bird continued and was viewed by several observers at the same spots loosely in the company of Steller’s Jays.

**A homeowner Gillian Shipman has photographed the bird at her feeder on Sinclair St since Oct 27th.**

**Please be respectful of private residences in the area and do not illegally park or block driveways.**

The bird has not been relocated since Jan 29-2024, despite multiple observers looking.

This is the second record for BC.
