"Townsend's Bunting" in Prince Edward County?!?!?

The Whatbird link to the story of this bird:
This is INSANE - this is one of John James Audubon's "long lost species" that was never seen again (even though he didn't actually see it alive?)... I have no idea, I'm just going on what I've just read with the links above...
But you could sort-of say that this is the second GLOBAL record EVER of this crazy bird... And now I'm deciding if I should go twitch the thing if it's refound...
