Hi All,


We had a great day at Tatlayoko Lake Bird Observatory today with two local rarities seen. First a Nashville Warbler showed up foraging in a mixed flock (recorded most but not every year here) then an Eastern Kingbird was sighted briefly (4th station record)! For more info check out today's blog post:

Hi Barry

Have a big favor to ask.

Can you have a look at an ebird checklist that I submitted #S47527881
There is a report of a female Broad-tailed Hummingbird on that checklist
with pictures that I am trying to get accepted by the local moderator.

Is this a BTHU and if not what is wrong that makes it just a Rufous.

Highly regard your opinion!!


Thanks
Richard Klauke

Subject: Tatlayoko Lake Bird Observatory - Season Startup
Date: Fri Aug 3 2018 23:50 pm

Hi All,


Our season kicked off today up here at TLBO. We had an average day 1 with 41 new birds banded and 3 recaptures (including a Willow Flycatcher banded in 2014!). It is looking like a good finch year with both Crossbills and Evening Grosbeak flying around. Northern Waterthrush and Swainson's Thrush also seem to be around in good numbers and the topped our banding totals. For more info check out the daily blog at:

Hi All,


The Tatlayoko Lake Bird Observatory in the Chilcotin (3hrs west of William's Lake) is looking for volunteers for the first few weeks of August starting Aug. 3. Similar to Vaseux Lake BO in the south Okanagan, we operate 12 mistnets and need help with extracting birds from the nets, the daily census count and "scribing" (recording the banding data as we collect it). We operate for 6 hrs each day, starting at sunrise. No prior experience is needed though at least one of the following skill sets would be useful:


1. basic computer skills and familiarity with Excel
2. bird handling/mistnet extracting experience
3. competent bird ID skills for western birds


This is a great opportunity to be immersed on a daily basis in the process of bird banding/migratory bird counts and contributing to an important on-going conservation project.


We have a couple accommodation options available for rent including a fully furnished cabin (with outhouse) and a "rustic" cabin. There are also camping options available.


Please email tatlayokobirdsAThotmail.com for more information.
