A little clarification on my initial history after further review and
editing: In McWilliams & Brauning's "Birds of Pennsylvania" there was a
1869 report of a bird shot on the Conestoga Creek in Lancaster. In 1924, a
report surfaced of a bird shot in 1844 in Elizabethtown, Lancaster County.
The text suggests the two reports may have been the same bird.
