update Painted Bunting

From the NYS Birds listserve

( Hopefully the warm spell has nudged it southward..we positively hope it has now corrected itself migrated southward when its good conditions for flying... ). I've seen enough did its job as a great ambassador for birding and conservation efforts.

Bird was present just north of its usual area from 11 till just before noon when it flew west. As of now bird has yet to have been refound. 


KingsBoider noon update : I ran into an acquaintance who mentioned she didn't see the Bunting all morning..Maybe it sounds like it REALLY flew the coop?  We'll see....
