Abstract: We describe in detail two Siberian Accentors that spent part of late winter/early spring 1994 in our garden, including notes on changes in plumage between early March and early April. We also note behaviour of the birds, including interactions with other species. This record constitutes the first confirmed occurrence, with photographs in Canada. It follows a single person sighting in Vancouver in December 1993.

Key words: Extralimital occurrence, Prunella montanella, Siberian Accentor
