today, a Sutton Animal Control Officer took in an injured WOOD STORK. No
further information is available.

This morning, Clara Cooper-Mullin

a Wood Stork on Block Island (Rhode Island).Josh Rose notes on the ABA
Rare Bird Alert facebook page, that Matt Schenck
<https://www.facebook.com/matt.schenck.90?hc_location=ufi>notes above
that the bird was last seen on Block Island soaring north, and Sutton MA
is about 80 miles due north from there. He notes he isĀ  usually
skeptical of the "Maybe this bird is the same individual as the one
which was seen recently in location X" speculation that seems to pop up
every time two rare vagrants of the same species are found in the same
half of the continent during the same calendar year, but in this case it
seems much more convincing than usual.

Joe Bourget <https://www.facebook.com/joe.bourget>noted that he can't
guarantee that this is the same bird, but Animal Control took this guy
in today. This is in Sutton, MA:
