That's so exciting Jared! Incredibly/incredulously I have only had one local sighting this summer, despite the fact that our yards are separated by no more than 500 feet, and we keep filled suet feeders. It has not, to my knowledge, visited our yard. I encountered it around the corner from you to the northwest, on Seneca Rd between its intersections with Bradley St. and Rte 96 -- an adult was working the groves of trees on either side of the road. This was about 10 days ago. Hoping for the best for these neighborhood newcomers!
