Just a friendly reminder ;-)

Anyone seeing the FEMALE PAINTED BUNTING at this location to PLEASE consider 
documenting the bird.
Particularly if you get a really good look at her or a PHOTO of her on the 
nest .
It was documented earlier (without photos) but think the view was rather 
brief, so any supplements to that will only strengthen the case of breeding 
at this location.

Documentation forms are on the ASM website. www.mobirds.org

Now.....I need to get my coffee on.
