Awesome find Trish! Thanks to those sharing their photos. Tim from Norwich was at the site this evening when I stopped. He had the bird in view during the afternoon, it was hiding for a little while tonight but it finally came out of hiding for us to view.
I guess Mansfield has two rare sitings this week, this bird & a moose at Mansfield Hollow!

> The bird appears to have an injured left wing as it's drooping in many of my photos. Of course that suggests it might be sticking around for a while. Note that I saw it flap it's wings and move quite quickly several times when startled but I never saw it get more than a foot into the air.
