We arrived about 9:30 and the bird was being seen by several birders in the 
Pyrus sp. at the end of the walkway.  We watched the bird and photographed 
it for at least 20 minutes.  It then flew to the west.  It was very 
cooperative again, eating a small pear fruit, appearing to fly-catch a 
couple times, and posing during this time.  I will send some pictures to 
Patrick to post later.

Happy New Year!
