As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Long-legged bird makes first landing in city

APRIL 30, 2014 12:00 AM

Bird watchers in Prince George are in a flap over the latest unique sighting in that north central B.C. city.
For the first time ever recorded, a blacknecked stilt has been spotted in the area.

Avid birder and Prince George Naturalist Club key leader Clive Keen photographed the small interloper Monday morning east of the city, just hours after it was spotted on Sunday evening.

"This is really very exciting for local birders," he said.

While the bird is not uncommon on the east side of the Canadian Rockies, it is very unusual on the B.C. side, "and almost unheard of in the north of the province," said Keen.
