An amazing sighting indeed! Hope that this bird is refound. Of course,
found right before I have to go out of town...
However, it is not the most northerly sighting of this species. That would
belong to a 2015 bird that showed up (overwintered, as I remember) in
Volga, South Dakota. Other "Northerly" records include North-Central
Kansas, Southwestern Colorado, and Oklahoma. This would, however, be a
first for the Atlantic coast, as far as I know, and the easterly most
record of the species in the US (regular on the Bahamas). Currently, the
most easterly record is from the New Orleans area.
Amazing bird! Hope it sticks!!
