Townsend’s Solitaire’s are in the Thrush family of birds. They are gray with white on their outer tail feathers and have distinct white eye-rings. They are found mostly in conifer forest areas and they eat insects and berries. I watched this one fluttering to grab berries off a bush in southern Arizona.

I have lovely memories of hearing a Townsend’s Solitaire many years ago on a hike with my mother. We stopped, found the bird with our binoculars, and then just listened. Lovely. Thanks for sharing your photo.
