We went to Truman Visitor's Center 2 weeks ago today and saw a male Painted
Bunting at the visitor's center. The one we saw was singing in the top of a
tree by the feeders. From talking with the people working there it sounds
like there are 3 males in the area as well as females reported.

from the visitor's center at the dam on May 27. This is in East Bledsoe
Ferry Park on the east side of the dam. Last year I had 3 males in that same
area. There were alot of dead trees last year on the hillside that they were
perched on singing, but most of the trees have been removed. Hopefully there
are more around but that was the only one that I found that day.
