Seen on the VNHS Field Trip at Colony Farm RP were 2 AMERICAN BITTERN, a
GREEN HERON & 2 male LAZULI BUNTINGS.  The most interesting sighting was on
a pair of EASTERN KINGBIRDS carrying nesting material.  The group consensus
was that there is a great possibility of 2 pairs being present.  One pair
was seen displaying near the footbridge.  The pair collecting nesting
material was on the POCO side NW of the bend in the river.

Seen perched on logs on the Fraser River south of the Pitt Meadows Airport
were 3 TURKEY VULTURES waiting to see what a feeding BALD EAGLE might leave

Thursday, June 9

The Grant Narrows Nature Dyke continues to produce GRAY CATBIRDS, EASTERN
KINGBIRDS and BULLOCKS ORIOLES.  It should be pointed out that sections
along this dyke trail are heavily over grown.  Early morning visits will
leave you quite wet from moisture from the vegetation.

Wednesday, June 8

A WESTERN SCREECH-OWL was heard calling in the 300 block of west 13 Ave. in
Vancouver.  It was heard at approx. 11:00 PM and called till around 11:30.
