RBA: ASH-THROATED FLYCATCHER in Osoyoos - May 23-24th

At 5:20 pm on May 23-2020, Lucie Parker found an Ash-throated Flycatcher in Osoyoos. The bird was flycatching from saskatoon and sagebrush bushes. She watched it for 5 mins before it flew off in a westerly direction and she could not relocate it. It likely could still be in the area since they can be skulky.

*The bird was relocated by Nathan Earley in the same location (see map link) at 7am on May 24th but has not been seen since, despite multiple observers looking.*

Map to location HERE

Directions: Look for the "Important Habitat" enclosure and there are cliffs just south of that enclosure where the bird was.

**As per current Public Health directives due to COVID-19 - Please remain 2 metres apart when viewing or looking for this bird. Please follow all public health directives (including not birding in groups) during this pandemic. The BC Public Health directives can be found HERE*
