A young White-tailed Tropicbird was photographed, appearing exhausted and laying on a dirt road in Marion County today, probably in or near Richland. They have the bird in their possession. They are non-birders, so I gave them some local wildlife rehabbers to contact, but I haven't received a response yet.
I could only find two other records on eBird of land sightings in Georgia - one in Atlanta in 1940, and another in the southeast corner in 1995.
