Red-flanked Bluetail

Spent several hours searching for this rarity last week without success. Visited Lazo Wildlife Park (Comox, BC) today (Jan.13) after a morning of xc skiing at Mt. Washington. At 2PM, about 1 minute after we arrived, success! However, we only had about 30 seconds to observe the tail-pumping beauty before it disappeared.
