Today, 7 Oct, at lunch there was Townsend's Solitaire behind our house in Bishop. A very cool bird... nice bold eyering, long black tail with white outer tail feathers, peachy wing patches on folded dark wing, actively flycatching. Appearing thrush-ish. This is a yard bird for us and the first we'd seen on the valley floor in a few years.
