On 21 May a male Painted Bunting was seen on the west side of the main campus area near the maintenance area by a swing set. It was watched for about 5 minutes at 20ft through binocs and telescope. The observer described the conical bill, blue head, red/orange underparts and green back effectively eliminating all other species. This information is from a Calbirds posting and written documentation submitted to the Heindels.
