The Gray Flycatcher is still at the same spot in Glen Valley. It was actively feeding and looked to be in great shape. There were five other birders about, getting good looks and photos of the bird. Lots of sparrows about. All the expected species, as well as a Swamp Sparrow. Also, Black-capped Chickadees, Ruby-crowned Kinglet and Bewick's Wren. In a nearby large tree, a Pileated Woodpecker. Again, no White-throated Sparrow for me. Good birding, John Vooys
Damion and I went to Glen Valley to see if the Gray Flycatcher was still around. Damion needed another Lifer! It was raining lightly when we arrived at the spot, but we found the bird actively feeding, almost right away. Another birder, on university business from Ontario, also came by hoping for a lifer. Both he and Damion were successful. Good birding everyone, John Vooys, Abbotsford.
