Observation details

found about 2:45 PM; lots of photos (unfortunately low light); I left it apparently undisturbed on roost (it turned its eyes away from me and closed its eyes as I left) but it was not there at about 5:15 PM - so it is active in the daytime, at least on this very overcast day; earliest fall record here (and, for me, earliest fall record anywhere); second photo from different angle shows some ruffled tail feathers which may or may not have something to do with this bird being here so early; third photo shows the moment of discovery and how conspicuous this bird was
