Around 10:30 this morning were six WEBB at the Hope Airport. They were in a small deciduous tree on Yale Rd. about 150 meters west of Airport Rd. Yale is the main road that runs along the south perimeter of the airport. I was on a Steelhead fishing expedition and of course didn't have my camera with me, which was a shame as they were quite tame and not at all nervous. I checked back about two hours later and could not relocate them. I did however find one of Gord's Northern Shrikes.

Gord, I might just as well have left the gear at home and stuck with the camera! There were 4 males and possibly 3 females. I only had a fleeting glimpse of the seventh bird and it could have have been something else as it dropped from the tree and into the field.
Sounds like a skunking on the river as well. Such is fishing (but not why I gave it up so what little spare time I have I can use to bird, as I ended up looking at birds more than I fished anyway! ;D )
