A squat bird with a large head, this species has lax. fluffy-looking plumage from which its name is derived. The bill is stout, with bristles surrounding the base to help in trapping insects, and the legs and feet are small and weak. The species is found in forest, along river banks within forest, anil in low woodland that grows up in clearings. It sits on a low perch that may be-either exposed or partly hidden in foliage, and makes short flights to take insects from nearby vegetation. Usually quiet, it utters a rising sequence of short notes, dying away to a twitter.

The steep, rocky slope near the cave entrance and exit is the summer home not only for Townsend's solitaires, but for several other high mountain birds. Violet-green swallows are most obvious they not only are abundant but they flycatch all along the upper trail. These are beautiful swallows with snow white underpays, violet-green backs, and white rumps. If one of the passing birds is in good sunlight, so that its back is highlighted, it can display an almost velvety, purple-green color. All the while, it may be uttering high-pitched calls, either a chip-chip or a tweet. White-throated swifts are also present along the higher cliffs in spring and summer, and can be confused with violet-green swallows because of their similar size. Swifts, however, are very different birds, all-black-and-white with narrow, curved wings and a twinkling method of flight. They often are described as flying cigars. Their flight is swifter and bolder than swallows' and includes considerable twisting and...

Its flight is undulating, with irregular wingbeats, as it moves between the scattered trees of its arid habitat or follows the lines of eucalyptus trees that mark the presence of a creek. It is also seen in acacia scrub. Most of the day is spent at ground level, searching for the small seeds of grasses and other plants that form its diet. Alexandra's Parrot also eats tree blossoms and mistletoe berries. A quiet bird, it has a soft twitter of alarm and a
