Part of me wants to be negative and state how unlikely it is... but,
stranger things have happened this year, for sure.
I'll be on the lookout myself. I wish I could afford a quick trip to visit
my family in Massachusetts as they'd be easier to find there, lots of them
being reported up there right now. A good irruption this year.
I've looked at the species maps(set this one for the last 10 years to get a
clearer picture) for this species and I've always found it fascinating how
there's this path up the middle of the country they seem to not like. East
and west of us is more favorable.

I suspect Eastern Arkansas would be more likely but anywhere is entirely
possible. And I do hope people will report it if one shows up. I'm up in
Benton county, maybe one will stop in my yard. I'll report if one does, and
visitors would be welcome here if, by some miracle, some showed up and
stuck around.
Oh, here's a good question.. during migration, do they have any preferred
habitat? I mean, outside of bird feeders, what might they be looking for?
