Great Kiskadee is common in Bermuda (introduced), but not in the Bahamas
or generally in the West Indies (maybe Jack, Bermuda is what you
meant?). Anyway, would be great to confirm this sighting.

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!!

Note, that's Bear Island, South Carolina, not Bear Island,
North Carolina - please remember to include state in sightings

This would be an amazing record to confirm - most northerly
sighting ever?

A picture was posted on Facebook this evening of a Great
Kiskadee from Bear Island. I have shared the post to the
Carolina Birders page. I have no location details but the
bird was seen today according to the post.
