At 11:30am on May 17-2020, Nathan Earley found and photographed a male Prothonotary Warbler in Osoyoos near Road 22. The bird was foraging and singing in the bushes near the water where the oxbows meet the dyke.

Map to location HERE.

The bird was last seen in the same location and was singing at 4pm and was been viewed by multiple observers on May 17th.

It was not relocated on May 18th, despite multiple observers looking.

This is the 10th record for the province of BC.
