Sage Thrasher (Oreoscoptes montanus) User: lou_dav  (See all photos - 1098)
Canada (British Columbia) Nighthawk Border crossing road near Osoyoos BC.
I had hoped to see Lark Sparrows on this road but had no luck with them. I stopped for lunch off the road and noticed a bird that looked a bit like a flicker out my window. I got out to check and was rewarded with this lifer, a Sage Thrasher. This is near-desert habitat, so they are seen here

Very interesting. Are there many in Canada?

Just in the southern tip of the Okanagan and maybe southern Sask. Environment Canada says there may be as few as 12 pairs in Canada. Also see: http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/okanagan/es.../thrasher.html
