A great big Thank You! to Charlene Malone for posting the  Hummer Alert for 
Jefferson City.  Went by this morning from 7:20 to 7:40  but did not see the

If you're coming through Jefferson City on Highway 54 heading  West 
(Southwest), take the Hwy 179 exit, then take the Route C exit.  Turn  left, heading 
towards Russellville.  After crossing over Hwy 179, Route CC  is the first left

right.  Has a nice circle driveway to park  in.
It's so much fun to actually see the bird you're going  after!
Good Birding!
