- Comments: "Continuing. Seen near the red bridge over the creek. Nancy States located it and had seen it with Dave Levasheff earlier in the morning. High up in a tree. Empid. Gray overall. Forked tail. Faint eye ring. Wings and top of head appeared darker. White wing bars. Lighting conditions made color discrimination very difficult. Was starting to rain, so bird may have been wet."
