> Good morning all,
> So, after my initial sighting of the bird, and taking a few satisfactory photos with my phone through binoculars, I ran back to my car to get my real camera. This was about 5pm. After a quick 5 min or so run back to where I saw the bird, I was not able to relocate it. I walked around for close to an hour with no luck. It may have been in the same area, but simply sitting still somewhere, which is what they tend to do as per Cornell’s All About Birds description.
> I encourage anyone to try for the bird, but just be mindful it may be very difficult to find as there is a ton of habitat at the WMA.
> As a reminder, I saw the bird at the bottom of the hill, on the right side next to the pond after passing through the pine/spruce grove.
