This morning Doug Brown found a singing Sagebrush Sparrow along the Osoyoos Irrigation Canal Trail. The bird was just north of 74th Street near the first access after the parking lot by Osoyoos Secondary school.

More info will be posted here if it's relocated:

This is one of several birds that Doug Brown has found in the area at this time of year. Doug believes that these birds are probably annual in Osoyoos but they are very early migrants. Due to this fact the area of sagebrush habitat they prefer, is not widely covered by birders since it is almost completely devoid of birds at this time of year.
