Responded and came in to playback at 05:50 at an undisclosed location down Open Ponds Rd. Came in very close; responding 2-3 times with combination of chatter calls and screams (distinguishable from similar EASO calls, will input xeno canto file number later). Keep in mind that playback is NOT allowed on NPS land, special exception for Christmas Bird Count today with permit, thus birders shouldn't chase and attempt playback on this bird at all.
