Observation details

***rare migrant, nice looking adult that I unfortunately observed for only ~10 seconds before it flew off and was unable to be relocated. Classic worn WESA with front heavy posture, long droopy bill (although not exceptional for WESA), rufous accents to crown, auriculars, and scapulars, and triangular markings to the breast and flanks. Probable male based on bill thickness and length. Possibly brought in by the strong north winds throughout the day today, photos.
