Alex Juchems and his very-sharp birder kids Sara and Matthew were excited to get a terrific yard bird today, Apr 18, about 9am. They live near Auburn's west hill.
Here is their msg. "Just a few minutes ago we ID'd a Townsend's Solitaire! It perched on top of a bird house Matthew had built and offered us 10 minutes of clear viewing, first with bin's and then with a scope. Using the scope we clearly saw the white eye ring, small black beak, large mostly gray body. The final confirmation came when we saw the orange-buff colored mark on the wing. What a thrill for us - a new life list bird."
