See below. Could conceivably follow the river south through Connecticut.

I just received a 2nd hand report from Marshall Iliff, that Spencer
Hardy texted him to report a Magnificent Frigatebird along the
Connecticut River in Hanover.  Presumably very recently.  Possibly this
bird might follow the river southward, so this is a heads up to all
birders in the river valley to get out this evening or tomorrow morning.

This, like the tropicbird, would be a first state record.
