This species regularly wanders into southern B.C. from its nearest breeding areas along the riparian corridors of the prairie provinces. Only two of the 25 records come from the south coast, where this species is an accidental spring and fall vagrant, with the rest coming from a variety of locations in the southern interior and a single observation in the Peace River lowlands of northeastern B.C. This species likely occurs annually during the breeding season in the southeastern and south-central interior, and, based on the frequency of observations during the breeding season, may even breed on occasion.
