One of the last of a handful of British transplants to Vancouver Island in the 1940's. This Skylark was found today by avid birder Jody Wells .. Thanks Jody for the tip and the ID .. I would not have known this one to be a rare bird.. Jody knows his birds!!!
Summer 2023.. I just received notice that my blog has been awarded a distinction of being one of the top 10 photography blogs in Canada.
