Summary: This first record for the state, with two enlarged photographs and convincing notes was officially accepted in 2002 although because of the good photos it was known to be a good sighting immediately in May of 1996.  (The original sight record was found in May of 2005 and added to the already reviewed record made from notes of the sighting and presented to the records committee in January of 2002).
