Unfortunately, I did not see it fly away. I looked down while creeping closer, and when I looked up he was gone. I'd gotten lost trying the find the trail and ended up in what used to be the reservoir but is now caked mud with some plants and lots of snail shells. It was kind of cool, but I was relieved when I finally found the path.
