The American Birding Association has yet to conclusively identify that the bird is, indeed, an Elaenia. But if the find is confirmed, it would be only the second sighting of an Elaenia bird in the United States. The first was also a White-crested Elaenia in South Texas in 2008. The rare bird was last seen flying further south toward the Englewood neighborhood.
The rare bird was again spotted at 6100 South Racine in Englewood where it was promptly shot my a member of the Black Disciples .
