When I reported this to Doug James this morning he came up with an anecdote from his vast past, as usual. To paraphrase.....
I discovered the first Townsend's Solitaire decades ago near Beaver Lake while mapping out my CBC circle. I went back and found the bird again with my students and they all saw it too. I had a rifle with me at the time and badly want to collect a specimen, but gave up when I realized that it would have fallen down a cliff to a spot where I could not have retrieved it.
