I'm not sure how uncommon this bird is but it's the first time I have seen one in the Lower Mainland...

Bert, in the past 10 years, during march - May, according to E-bird only 30 or so have been spotted between Abbotsford and Hope. I see quite few more sightings in metro Vancouver, but didn't check the dates as some of those may be the same birds being recorded

Beautiful shot Bert. Did you spot him in a local park?
