How can you assume this is the same bird? That seems like a pretty crazy
assumption given distances between observation locations! Obviously, this
is a rare bird this far north (for either state) but I think it would be
nuts for the same bird to be found given the total amount of area and
number of birders in the total amount of area. I may be way off here but
just pointing out that we birders don't really cover a high percentage of
the total landscape.

I chased this bird this evening and didn't find it. I live only about 15
miles from observation so had to try! Also, I just spoke with person who
found bird and it was last seen at 5:30 pm today.
