I corresponded with the observer and looked for the bird this morning, from dawn until around 8:45, but with no luck. He said it was hanging around his barn and on fences out in his fields all afternoon yesterday, but he has not seen it so far today. Light rain kept activity low while we were there, so it's possible it might still be in the area. He said he would let me know promptly if it reappears today or in coming days, so I will get the word out with contact information if that happens, but it may have moved on as these species often does. It did spend all its time on private property and would have been challenging to see from the road, but Ulf was very friendly and knowledgable and would undoubtedly be willing to host more birders should the bird return.
