Arrived at 9:15.  First heard the Solitaire calling briefly at 10 on the west side of Valleywood Road, roughly behind #76.  At 10:15 it appeared near the top of a deciduous tree on the east side of Valleywood directly opposite the big spruce at #78, calling non-stop for 2 minutes.  Then flew west to a low perch in a deciduous tree behind #74.  

Beware if you are listening for this bird- there is a bluejay here that gives an excellent spontaneous imitation of the Solitaire.  I heard it calling 3 times, each time tracking it down and finding a calling blue jay!

Also had a bald eagle flyover.
