What a treat to see this fantastic bird! Guy Monty and Nolan were birding the Nanaimo River Estuary when they found it. Lori and I were there within the hour and didn't have to wait long until it popped up in a bush. We followed at a safe distance for an hour and enjoyed watching it preen and feed. There were also 2 Mountain Bluebird (female) and a Say's Phoebe in the immediate vacinity and a flyover Osprey. Not a bad twitch!
