Hi all,
Matt ( I believe Andrews) and I watched the Inca Dove from around 3:30 
to 4:10 today near the west feeders at the Nature Center.  The bird 
landed on the windshield wiper of a pickup and stayed there the entire 
time, in spite of the fact that a Nature Center employee opened the 
driver side door and unloaded materials from the pickup truck.  
Apparently, it was the warmest place around. I took some rough pictures 
through my scope for documentation purposes, and would be happy to send 
them to Patrick if anyone is interested but looked at a very close up 
high resolution photo taken by someone in the Ornithology group earlier 
in the day.  I'm sure many high resolution close ups will be taken in 
the coming days.
Employees of the Center said that the bird has been hanging around the 
cars parked near the feeders for almost a week.

Good Birding,
Greg Swick
