Dear Tweets:

I didn't give much thought to posting our GPS coordinates in this
report. Now I feel just a twinge of concern about our privacy and
about not spooking birds in our yard.

Tina Blade and I kindly request that if you want to try for a look at
this bird, you please respect our privacy and do your viewing from
the street. From NE Ring Street in Duvall, 50 feet west of Broadway
Ave. NE, you will be within 50 feet of our feeders and should get
good views with binoculars. If the bird is here, you'll see it from
the street without difficulty.

Thanks for practicing good birding etiquette :)
