The Virginia’s Warbler that has eluded birders since Eric Miller first found it on 31 October has been refound – and photographed – by Andrew Baksh.

This is the first documented record of this southwestern wood-warbler in New York State. Congratulations to Eric for the original find and to Andrew for forestalling any accusations of stringing against Eric!

Now I have to go try to find the stupid bird again even after already having spent almost ten hours looking…
