Townsend's Solitaire, a montane bird that likes lower elevation during winter (and spring)

I found this Townsend's Solitaire, a 'drab winged' bird per Sibley, in Fairmount Cemetery in Lamar this morning. Though they breed in higher elevation forests they do an altitudinal migration during winter. Checking ebird records it is not uncommon to find this species in Lamar in early May. SeEtta
