It is indeed the work of Ohara Koson. In the Koson Catalog Raisonne, "Crows, Cranes, and Camellias", it is cataloged as K35.4. The title is "Songbird on Plum Branch".

If you google this: Koson "Songbird on Plum Branch", you will find a modern mechanical copy of your print being sold by some joker on eBay as a "Japanese Art Print". I can't find any other places where this design has been documented on the web. It is, most likely, a rare print.
