Sighting Record 1255315

Observation Notes: 
Weather is 70-80° and dry. He’s been hanging out behind a screen, not moving too much, but free to leave the way he came in. A large tree is only a few feet away. I read they only live a short time, so gently sent him off— afraid he was unsure of how to leave the nook he found. He’s too pretty to not be enjoying the summer weather, I startled him, he opened his wings, and flew off.
