[Tweeters] Townsend's Solitaire in Burien

At our former home on South Hill in Puyallup (around 400' elevation) and now where we live just south of Port Orchard (350' elevation but just a few miles from the Sound), we have always heard Townsend's Solitaires starting about this time every year. In fact, while I've heard them chirping in the evening the past week or so, I finally heard the first upward trilling thrush call just last night.

I've always considered this bird fairly common in the Puget Sound lowlands but maybe we've just been lucky? Or am I a highlander who thinks he is a lowlander?
