Googling says that this is what we might have seen, but ours was more blue in the chest and neck. I wish I'd grabbed the camera - maybe I just need to start hauling it everywhere. :) It was lovely, and we watched it fly around a bit before moving on.
It was a good call about the weather, too - it started snowing 15 minutes after we got back, and hasn't let up. Big fat flakes, too. Weather.com says there's a 50 to 70 percent change it's going to snow all night.
This is where I note that next week is spring break.
