A January American Bittern at Fernhill Wetlands (01/10/16)

An American Bittern was fully out in the open at Fernhill Wetlands this last Saturday. The lighting was great too. Gotta love it! This bird is a rare winter bird for Washington Co.

Siberian Accentor in Surrey, BC (01/19/2016)

Long having been a target on my most-wanted list, I was thrilled to hear of this great find in Surrey, BC, from a few days ago. The location is south of 160 St & Colebrook Rd on the north edge of the blueberry field (49.097899, -122.778919).

With the strong photographer presence today, I’m sure there are better shots of da burd floating around. Anyway, here is mine.
