Abstract: A male Common Eider, first seen in sub-adult plumage in West Vancouver in November 1996, provides the fourth confirmed record for British Columbia, and the southern-most for the Pacific Coast of North America. Presumably the same bird was observed frequently in the greater Vancouver area until 6 April 1998.

Key words: Common Eider, extralimital occurrence, Somateria mollisima v-nigra, Vancouver
