I commented a month ago about a rare bird sighting (for the Eastern US) back in my hometown, a Lazuli Bunting. Finally, I got a chance to come down to visit my folks, and as luck would have it, it was still there.
About an hour and a half ago, my dad and I went down to see if it was still there – and stood around for an hour in the cold Spring air, watching everything but the bird we wanted to see, before it arrived at the patch of birdseed spread out invitingly for it. A great look, and a life bird for me.
We also saw (in no particular order):
