Refound this morning by Carl, who was among the three patient birders who visited in hopes it would show.  Birders were all there by 7; bird there by 9:30, as per yesterday.  It never came down for a drink this time, but perched in unobstructed view – if poor light – for a few minutes before flying off, oddly, right towards an operating garbage truck.Checklist with photos that won’t surpass Michael Evans’ from yesterday here:Hillcrest Painted Bunting ChecklistUp to four birders at a time are welcome to visit with notice.  Probably best from 8:30am or 5pm. Contact me directly to make arrangements if you’re interested.  Who knows how long it might stay. Mike has some experience with this in the Tijuana River Valley, and offered two weeks as a likely maximum.Tuck RussellHillcrest
