That's why Sunday I was so pleased when I saw a report in Massbird that it had been seen again only two hours earlier. Though the weather was threatening rain and the clouds loomed overhead, I rushed over to see if I could see this unique bird.
Based the number of cars in the parking lot when I arrived, I realized that I wasn't the only person that wanted to see this bird. Given that the northern end of its range normally extends only to the southern border of Texas and Arizona. For non-birders that were asking questions, I said it was like he decided to take his summer vacation in New England, much like the people from far away that visit Cap Cod each year.
I can see why it is such an attraction. (For more information about this bird check out the Cornell website.)
