RUFOUS-THROATED SOLITAIRE
Myadestes genibarbis

Parrot

Comments / Research Needs:
Our capture data and acoustic detection data indicate that Rufous-throated Solitaires make altitudinal / seasonal migrations between breeding and non-breeding areas: we don’t detect this species in Windsor after the second week of May through the third week of September.

CPs (n=2) recorded in early May.

BPs not detected in Windsor.

JUV pictured above was captured on 21-October-2005.

We suspect the species has a Pre-Alternate Moult, but larger sample sizes are needed.
