I heard from the PABU’s host, Michael Hennon on Friday, 5/31/19 that the PABU was still coming to his feeder. It was 8:30 pm on 5/30 when he saw it. To reinforce what you said, Tommy, it seems to be sticking with this pattern of spending the day near the river, then showing up at his feeder in the evening. If we can safely assume it is the same bird, and it seems likely. (Thanks to a mutual friend’s introduction, I saw the bird on 5/25/19 at 8:15 pm at Michael's feeder that particular evening.)

I was at the PABU this morning and he is acting like he is on territory. If conditions worsen out there PLEASE DO NOT try to ford the road to see the bird. I believe he will stay in the general area through most of the summer, and there should be another time that we can safely see the bird. 

If you do want to see it today you can still access it, even from WB i44, but you have to go through the Eating Corp parking lot to get past a floodle on Soccer Park Road. It is much easier to access from EB i44 if that option is available to you though.

The prediction is for the river to come up another 18 inches or so.

The Painted Bunting is singing about half way fown the road from the Soccer zpark entrance to Unger Park. 
Soccer Park Road is flooded and impassible.  Access is only possible from the south (east bound) outer road. If the river gains another foot or so the whole area will be flooded
