A juvenile Gyrfalcon has been spotted today at 112th street north of Ladner Trunk Road.

In the same area there are a few Tundra swans and of course a Northern Goshawk was also spotted there a few days ago.

Cheers.

Ran into Brian Stech this morning he thoroughly checked this area and did not find the goshawk or gyrfalcon nor the tundra swans.

Cheers

Mike and Sharon Toochin and Ilya Povalyaev and Yousif Attia just found a Juvenile Gyrfalcon at Brunswick Point. The bird is sitting in the cottonwoods by the farmhouse just before the big bend.

They also found a Swamp Sparrow at the first bend on the north side along with the continuing Tree Sparrows which they found between the first two benches.

Cheers,
Mel

Mike Klotz had the Gyrfalcon in the fir north west of the barn where the prairie falcon was hanging out a couple years ago by the main parking lot.

Cheers,
