The 100th Bird Celebration, held on Saturday, July 28, 2007, was attended by approximately 100 people and marked a milestone in Hastings Park. A nature walk guided by renowned naturalist Al Grass preceded the celebration. After the speeches a delicious cake decorated with a black-headed grosbeak was served and musical entertainment was provided by talented Conservancy members. The event was a great success with a number of new members joining the Conservancy.
Migratory birds along the Pacific Flyway continue to discover the Sanctuary. In 2008 a pair of common yellow throat, a northern water thrush, a Caspian tern and a trio of black-headed grosbeaks brought our species count to 103.
As of 2011 over 120 bird species have been identified with the most recent new sighting, a yellow-bellied sapsucker.
May many more find their way to an ever greener Hastings Park!
