RBA: BLACK VULTURE on Balaklava Island - Sept 5-6th

At 5pm on Sept 5th-2017, Ivan Dubinsky found and photographed a Black Vulture on his property. The bird is sitting directly outside his back door at the Scarlett Point Lighthouse.

The island sits 18 kilometres northwest of Port Hardy near the north end of Vancouver Island.

Access to the island is possible by boat or helicopter only. This is the 5th record for the province of British Columbia.

The bird is still present as of 11am on Sept 6th.

The bird was not seen on Sept 7th.
