Bird magazine recognizes New West sighting
A little bird that had watchers all aflutter in New Westminster last January was one of 2013's top bird stories according to BirdWatching magazine.
The publication ranked a red-flanked bluetail's appearance in Queen's Park on Jan. 13 as one of the top three North American sightings in the month of January and one of 42 for the year.
It was the first time a sighting of the species had been recorded in Canada, and its presence attracted bird watchers from all over the Pacific Northwest.
