IS, We had one (or a relation) parked over in Nutters Neck WMA about two weeks ago for a few nights. I take the dog out after midnight and listen for owls, etc. I tried to record it but it was too distant to overcome static hum. I am out pretty much every night; it must have moved on. If I remember, we can expect another who thinks 'this is North' in mid-summer.
