    Good directions, Mike--especially for morning viewing.
      I saw the bunting yesterday morning (along with
    another EBBC person) and, from the road the birds was
    pretty drab, owing to the sun being behind him. There
    was a bit of a blue aura, but he looked mostly black.
    By crossing the creek and the field, going into the
    area with the thistles--thus putting the sun behind me
    and shining directly on him--I could see his full,
    glorious color. I would imagine that in the afternoon
    the road would be the place from which to view him.
    Cheers,
    Alan Howe
