Went to Duluth on this very cold day. Went up to the house and the owner 
said it was last seen at 1:10. I arrived at 2:20 and watched . Many siskens 
and chickadees but no bird . My younger son (14 years old and not a birder) 
said there was a brown bird in the trees to my right. I ignored him and said it 
was a sisken. He went back to the car to stay warm and I froze for another 
hour waiting. It finally showed up at a feeder and I went to get my son to 
see  it. When he came and looked he said: So you found the bird I told you 
about an hour ago. I'm such an expert I didn't even listen to him earlier. If I 
would have listened to this novice an hour earlier I wouldn't have had to 
freeze. A good lesson for all of us. Never dismiss others reports because they 
may be accurate. Saw the bird at 3:30 and it was actively feeding.
