Frank Lu photographed this Gyrfalcon today on Sharpe Rd pass the Golden Ears Greenhouses toward Old Dewdney Trunk Rd.

So he got the prairie falcon and a gyrfalcon in one day! Not bad at all!

Here is his beautiful shot:

The sub-adult Gyr continues today in Pitt Meadows. I wouldn't be surprised if he pushes out the Prairie Falcon. The Gyr was seen today between Mckechnie Rd and Sharpe Rd flying over Connecting Rd. It then landed in a large cottonwood along Mckechnie.

Here is a gorgeous photo of it used with permission by Mike Tabak

Mel

The Gyr is taking turns sharing the tree today with the PRFA at Mckechnie and Connecting Rd.

Cheers,
Mel

Frank Lu had the continuing Gyrfalcon at Connecting Rd and Mckechnie Rd today. The Gyr was in the same tree as the PRFA.

Here is his lovely photo:

A five falcon day is now possible in Pitt Meadows! 2 of my friends did it today Raymond and Eric.

They both got Merlin, Gyrfalcon, Prairie Falcon, Peregrine Falcon and Kestrel in different locations throughout the day. Not to mention the two Harlan's Hawks as bonuses.

If that isn't awesome, I don't know what is!!

Cheers,
Mel

Raymond Ng did exceptionally well on his five falcon day. I'll have to try this out soon! Hopefully I'm as lucky as Ray.

Here are some lovely photos he got of the GYRF after it pushed the PRFA out of the neighbourhood.

The Gyrfalcon was present today in a large tree on the south end of Sharpe Road just before Old Dewdney Trunk Road.
