We had a 2.5 hour drive to the flycatcher location. During this time the bird was reported to have left the original location. We had a decision to make; keep driving south and have faith the bird would be re-found, or bail and head back north. We decided we might as well give it a shot. As soon as we arrived, we started our search around the original location. Within a few minutes, we got a report, the bird had been relocated! We rushed over to the new location to find a small group of birders watching the bird. After many years of hoping to see this species in the US, it was a very satisfying day.
