E-Fauna BC: new species pages and sightings...

There has been a lot of excitement in BC about the presence of the Red-flanked Bluetail, a northern European/northern Asian bird species that has appeared in New Westminster--the first record for BC and Canada.  Accidental occurrences like this are often reported, and include last year's sighting in Richmond of a Ribbon Seal, an Arctic/sub-Arctic species.

Recently added atlas pages on E-Fauna BC include:

Conmarginal Bittersweet (Glycymeris keenae), a new bivalve species for BC discovered in 2008 by Bill Merilees.
