A recent request received in my office sought information on any location for a daughter to take her 86 year old mother, who is slowing down a little bit these days, but has always wanted to see Painted Buntings, a species that has eluded her so far, where they can see some.

Does anyone know of such a location that very-viewable, vibrantly-colored Painted Buntings reside,  without much walking, wading or wandering about though the bushes involved?  They live near Jefferson City.

Please excuse the alliteration.

Please respond directly to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>

Thanks in advance.
