Turdus Solitarius (Latin for solitary thrush) was a constellation created by Pierre Charles Lemonnier in 1776 from stars of Hydra's tail. It was named after the Rodrigues solitaire. It was replaced by another constellation, Noctua (the Owl), in A Celestial Atlas (1822) by the British amateur astronomer Alexander Jamieson. Neither constellation is in current use.
