Last Sunday after missing Boris (as he was dubbed by the neighbours) twice I got to see the Brambling that has been reported from around W 17th Ave in Vancouver. I was a little late to the party, missing the big crowds that flocked there during January. Bramblings are native to the Palearctic but regularly stray into Alaska on migration, sometimes showing up as far south as California or, in this case, Vancouver. This particular Brambling been coming regularly to this feeder since December but who knows when he may set off for Siberia, so see him while you can.
