Thanks for the info, Carl. It sure was a surprise to me.

And sorry, I should have added that it was on 21 June 2021.

While leading a WOS field trip on 24 June 2013, my party was lucky to find one perched on a snag near Chesaw 1.25 miles up Mary Ann Creek Rd from its int. with Chesaw Rd. It is the only record I see in eBird anywhere around there in the last ten years.

It’s a private lane and doesn’t show up on any maps, so I can’t enter it in eBird. Thus this is my only way of sharing this observation of what must be a very rare bird in Okanogan County. Certainly I have never seen one there. It was very close, landed briefly in front of us, and then took off into the forest before I could get a camera on it.
