The "MIA" Townsend's Solitaire reemerged over lunch hour today at Ann
Lake/Sand Dunes, after not being seen for a month.
Directions: take Sherburne CR 5 to 253rd (across the highway from CR 4),
proceed west on 253rd little over a mile. Park in the small lot on the
south (right) side, walk south on the snowmobile/dog sled (no kidding) trail
about 50 yards, look and or walk west (right) on the snowy fields to the
second copse of spruces. It was seen both on the top of the deciduous trees
and in the spruces.
The mixed Bohemian/Cedar flock, when present (single Bohemian today), can
often be seen in the deciduous trees just north of the spruces.
Behavioral note: have observed both Robins and Waxwings "dipping" on the
bird this winter - wonder why it would be considered a threat?
Good birding to all!
