    Details: ****first state record. Obviously very unexpected. First seen as it lifted off from one of the islands and flew across the pond. I recognized it immediately due to the blue upperparts and neck with white underwings and belly. Lost it as it flew off towards the western part of the wetland, so I’m not positive if it is still there or if it took off. I’m guessing that it landed in the western part, but I never saw it again despite sticking around for almost an hour. Photos. Viewed from the 2-track on the east side, but probably walking the western edge would be more productive for finding it.
