Forbidden Fruit

This week’s photo, taken February 13, 2017 at Richmond Beach Park in Shoreline, WA, features a TOWNSEND’S SOLITAIRE, an uncommon visitor to the west side of Washington state, and a rare species here during the winter months.

I suspect that this individual was munching on snowberries (the white out-of-focus dots in the background of this image). Apparently, the fruit of the Snowberry plant is poisonous to humans, so unless you are a Townsend’s Solitaire, you should consider consuming some other type of fruit.
