Group Description

Welcome to VANBCbirds.
Our header photo is the first known photographic proof of successful breeding of Western Scrub Jay in B.C. Taken in Maple Ridge, B.C. on June 18, 2014 by vanbcbirds member John Gordon.

This is a group for bird reports in metro Vancouver. Before posting, please read the following Rules (R) and Suggestions (S):
1. (R) THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE BIRDS ALWAYS COME FIRST. Please read the American Birding Association's Code of Ethics at: www.aba.org/about/ethics.html
2. (R) Please do not post the specific or general location of sensitive birds or bird nests, that may be negatively affected by the presence of many birders and/or photographers. Species include, but are not limited to, OWLS and roosting nightjars.
3. (S) We recommend not posting sightings of owls or other sensitive birds on eBird, social media or photo-sharing sites, until AFTER the sensitive bird has left the area. In eBird you can check off “Hide from eBird output”, then uncheck it after the bird has left.
4. (R) Sign all posts with your first and last name. Please also post your location and the directions to locations of all birds reported.
5. (R) Please do not post controversial subjects such as politics, or religion. (Conservation issues are allowed but only to raise awareness to the issue.)
6. (R) No personal attacks to other group members. We have to stick together if we are to protect and ensure a future for all birds and other wildlife.
7. (R) Please don't post on anything to do with domestic animals.
8. (S) This is a birding group, but if you would like to post on other interesting wildlife or plants please do so.
9. (S) This is a great spot to invite people on bird walks and outings that may be taking place.
10. (R) Please do not invite anyone to the group who you feel is an irresponsible birder, photographer and/or person in general. Please try to keep it a safe place to post bird locations.
