In addition to the SAY'S PHOEBE spectacularly found by Jeremy Nance, an apparent CHESTNUT-THROATED SEEDEATER was seen in the northern part of the orchard. Photos were obtained by Aidan Kiley and Mark Danforth, which clinch the ID. I personally saw it along with Jory Teltser flying over the corn field, where we noted a white belly contrasting with a gray back, minuscule size, a forked tail, and a single flight call. It looked very disheveled, and is almost definitely an escapee.
