    Comments: ***mega in the spring and just about ties the northernmost record for the cape (in ebird). First noticed a bird feeding in the grass while driving by and stopped to see what it was. Noticed a green bird with an eyering/spectacles and immediately thought female PABU. It was a quick view and the bird flew off so I started doubting myself and trying to figure out what else it could be. (Spent a while trying to turn it into a female SUTA since it seemed too large overall and the bill seemed longer than a PABU would show, but it wasn’t working for that either.) Eventually, the bird came back and we got closer, better views and photos and saw that it was indeed a PABU. Photos showed that it was a young male with the beginnings of some blue feathers coming in on its face. The bird again flew off and this time didn’t return for about 15 min. It came back and circled the area before flying off again (in a different direction) and was not seen again despite multiple checks over the next couple hours. Photos to be added.
