Joe Giunta and I (Sy Schiff) arrived at the Gatsby Playground site as a group of birders was leaving. They told us where the PAINTED BUNTING was and we soon found it. It fed while we watched, but within the reeds making pictures always obscured by branches and stems. No problem, we’re birders not photographers.
Next stops, field #6, but no Iceland Gull nor a Black-headed Gull at Jones Island bar where we stopped. The road leaving the West End #2 lot, overlooked a field surrounded on one side by photographers, lots of them. We looked where they were looking and saw the SNOWY OWL that has been hanging out there. It was resting on the ground. (There is no need to hide its location. The world was there all taking pictures).
