I was at a friend's house on the Honeydew plots today and heard that distinctive call. Great excitement and i didn't have binoculars with me. :wall: :wall: :wall: By the time some were found it had gone, but I did see the bird calling in a dead tree, even though I couldn't properly see it to ID. :dance: :dance: :dance:

I didn't know they came this far south.
