BC Birds

Here are the 3+ new birds I photographed on my trip to Victoria in March. I say 3+ because although I already had a Northern Flicker, it was a yellow-shafted and now I have a red-shafted as well. Yay!

Mystery Solved

I’m finally getting around to going through my pictures from my trip to Victoria at the end of March. Here’s a moth I found at Goldstream Provincial Park. I’m better at IDing birds than I am at butterflies and moths, so I’m posting a link to the BC Butterflies group for some help. Thanks in advance!

Update: Thanks to Mike and Norbert from the BC Butterflies group – it’s an Epirrhoe plebeculata. I guess not all moths have common names! That’s one more thing I’ve learned today.
