Hi All,

Sorry for the mistake. Friday's bunting seen and photographed in Neah
Bay was incorrectly identified in the field. Photograph by Jon Isacoff
revealed immature/female Painted Bunting. Thanks to Paul Lehman and Ryan
Shaw for the catch.

Now if only the weather would improve slightly, then this bird would be
even more worthy of re-locating. Maybe best strategy would be to look
for a junco flock on west side of town to see if it might be still with
them.

Cheers and good birding,
Brad Waggoner
