Observation details

First noted by Bill Tweit (BITW) after hearing distinctive call in bramble patch just east of the mini mart against the waters edge, while with Jon Isacoff and Brad and Dan Waggoner. Initial viewing included bold cinnamon/rust tones to head, buff wing bars, large conical bill and medium length darkish tail that was often moving about in a rather circular motion. ID was immediate after it appeared in full view along fence line. Seen well by all in the following 1/2 hour period as it moved slowly about in blackberry/grass patch. Appears to be a HY bird. Photographed extensively. 2nd state record.
