Recovery Strategy for the Sage Thrasher (Oreoscoptes montanus) in Canada

The Sage Thrasher (Oreoscoptes montanus) is a medium-sized songbird that can be distinguished from other thrashers by its smaller size, short tail and short bill. Adult Sage Thrashers have brownish-grey upper parts with indistinct streaking on their crowns, off-white under parts streaked with dark brown spots, and brownish wings with narrow whitish wing-bars and black bills. The Sage Thrasher song is a long, harmonious, flute-like series of warbling notes. Sage Thrashers are short-distance migrants, and are only present in Canada between spring and late summer.
