PaulK Posted October 9, 2022 Share Posted October 9, 2022 I don't think this is an ABA rarity but we had a really good local example of the Patagonia picnic table effect today in Metro Vancouver. There are a number of California Scrub Jays hanging out in a park (rare but there are a few every year) so the park has had a ton of experienced birders there adding to their year lists. This morning two of them were looking for the Jays up in a tree and an Acorn woodpecker flew in! As far as I can tell this is the first sighting in Metro Vancouver, with the last regional sightings being in 2010 and 2011 in a neighbouring region, and that's all. Quite a bird! 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
