I had been looking for him in the area, after seeing a tip on nf.birds, that he was spotted near the Fluvarium at Long Pond, that morning. It was cold, with a mix of drizzle and snow flurries, and I was losing the light, as it was now late afternoon. I decided to check one more spot, down the west end of the lake...And there he was in all his glory.
