Jason Horn drove out onto the fishing pier at Lake Nockamixon in Bucks County and spotted a small bird in the water. After initially doubting what he was seeing, he realized that it was a Long-billed Murrelet! Calls were made and the scramble began as birders from all around the state and beyond headed for the lake. Since I was out, I didn't find out about it until fairly late in the day. Luckily, I made it there just before dusk and got to look at it through one of the many scopes set up on it.
This bird represents the 1st record for Pennsylvania! It was a new state bird for me and everyone else who got there to see it.
