February 6, 2016Gibson County Lake, Gibson Co.
A non-birding friend of mine who often fishes on Gibson Co. Lake sent me a pic
that he took late Saturday afternoon while fishing (when the fishing is slow he
takes nature pics). He asked me if the bird in the pic was the bird that I saw
last week. He said at first he thought it was a Mockingbird but then noticed it
wasn't. He thought it looked like the bird I had posted pics of last week on
the Facebook birding page. It's clearly a back lit picture of the Townsend's
Solitaire! It was seen along the north shore of the lake. He was in his boat
when he took the picture and said the bird was 20 feet away when he took the
He was going to be out there again today and said he'd look for the bird and
let me know but apparently the bird may still be in the area but it moving
around quite a bit!
