Townsend’s Solitaire – Wolcott Mills Metropark

A Townsend’s Solitaire was found by Todd Butkowski today at Wolcott Mills Metropark. I relocated it at 530pm along with a couple of other birders. When I saw Todd post on facebook, I almost choked on my dinner, got in my car and flew to the park. Other birders saw the post also and we found it not far from where it was originally found. Enter into the park on Kuntsman Rd between 29 and 30 mi rd. From there drive to the end and park. Go over the bridge toward the mill and on the left side there will be a sign for the mill race trail. take this trail down to the river and a sign about the old dam. The Townsend’s Solitaire was past the sign about 20 yards, feeding on some berries in the shrubs there. This is the 4th new bird for the county this year. Awesome Find by Todd!!
