Townsend's Solitaire

Josh Engel found a Townsend’s Solitaire at Montrose on the morning of November 16. Unfortunately, this bird was literally a one hour wonder and was seen by only a handful of people. Ironically this bird fed on berries in the same tree that the Sage Thrasher had been using. This is only the second record of this species for Montrose, the first being in 2008.
