Second visit of the day revealed the continuing Townsend''s Solitaire. Feeding on small fruit trees front/left of house. Met Bruce Barker on my first visit. We did not see the bird, but Bruce pointed out the not-very-obvious small fruit tree, standing a bit behind other small trees that the bird had been seen in. On my second visit, returning home from a trip to Bangor, later that day, I barely found the bird. It had probably been there but blended in so well ( gray bird on bare gray branches, tucked in behind). I managed to catch the slightest of movement and there it was. I never would have found it if it hadn't been for Bruce. Photo http://www.flickr.com/photos/45641961@N02/551277s)2905/ (NNW of center)
If you click "Change Portal", this checklist will be assigned to the portal you select below. This will allow you to switch to a portal-specific protocol if desired.
Hide this Checklist?
Hiding a checklist will exclude the taxa on it from all forms of eBird output that show a location (including bar charts, maps, and arrival/departure tables), but the observation will still be accessible to you, and will appear on your lists.
It will be considered not public in the eBird database since we cannot approve bird records without accurate location information.
Although we understand that some checklists need to be excluded from eBird's public output due to privacy concerns or other issues, we strongly recommend against this unless absolutely necessary.
