(See pictures at very bottom)
Hi everyone,

About an hour and a half ago (2:45) as I was walking home from school I had
what appeared to be an early SAGE THRASHER pop up about 10-15 feet away
from me. I took some iPhone pictures of it making some sort of alarm call
and I have cropped them to hopefully make them more identifiable. It was
north of the Altona Midddle School, on the bike path off of Grandveiw
Meadows Dr. about 35-45 yards(ish) down the trail east of the underpass
perched in a small tree/bush. When I finished taking pictures and looked up
again it flew another 30 feet or so up trail(east) and perched at the top
of one of the red bushes. I have never had them this early and especially
in Longmont, it was a huge surprise to have it there. Tommorow I will look
for it again, and hopefully get some good pictures to share. And please
tell me if you think it could be anything different.
