It was seen yesterday.

Please stay on the pavement!

This eBird checklist (from local Joette Borzik) has a caution about staying on the road and not walking on to private property for any reason

Spent much of yesterday afternoon perched on a fallen tree in the middle of a winter wheat/rye field opposite 686 Currie Rd. The owner of the farm the bird is on does not want visitors on his property (requested in a nice way). You could see the bird easily with bins or scope.
