Hi Everybody,

The Routledges, who first found the Citrine Wagtail last November, asked me to post the below information to Tweeters so that we will all have access to updated CIWA sightings.

Hello Fellow Bird Watchers,Ornithologists & "Twitchers",

Thurs:Jan:10th - NOT Seen -(A very windy,cold but sunny day.Ice on puddles.For 3hrs)

There is still a lot of interest in the CITRINE WAGTAIL with many visitors from various parts of N.America arriving,and showing great interest in this unique Eurasian visitor.
We shall attempt to keep track of the bird for as long as possible,if we can.But with the
winter weather conditions and its feeding areas also changing,this maybe challenging.
Any additions or corrections are always useful. And any new sightings,or NOT,
by anyone, please post them on BCVIBIRDS at YAHOOGROUPS.COM as we do, and as soon as possible. We Thank you, and to all those who report their findings.
