Observation details

Continuing bird. I arrived before 7am and the whole area was in a thick fog that delayed morning light for quite a long time (first true rays poked through the clouds at 8:40am). I checked the thickets very thoroughly with no luck so the bird was likely roosting in the meadow grasses. First spotted at 8:30 by Scott Surner. Bird was perched in the grasses across the road from the sumac thicket. Gave "smack" note very similar to SAVS constantly, and eventually mosied its way across the road to the thicket and associated with SOSP and SAVS around 8:50. Probably not going to migrate out tonight with the high winds and precipitation, and perhaps around for the weekend with poor migration predicted for Friday and Saturday.
