I've read a few sighting reports recently but I've never personally seen one either. Good spot and image Joe.

You've got a great eye Joe to have spotted this one and get a very nice capture too.
I love the subtle textures of the underwing feathers of the near wing...beautiful light that. Such an interesting beak color too, especially in combination with the black head.
